Are We There Yet? A Panel Discussion on Pay Equity, Partnership, and Serving the Public. 

This free virtual panel will discuss the ongoing challenges of senior women lawyers and women partners working in traditional law firm settings. These include the absence and/or secrecy around the maternity leave and parental leave policies, disparity in pay even at the partnership level, and other reasons why women, even partners, are choosing to start their own law firms. This has an impact on the public's ability to find a woman lawyer.

This is particularly pronounced in areas such as criminal law, civil sexual assault, family
etc. where members of the public may want a woman lawyer to represent them. Addressing these
issues may also increase the number of women in senior roles who may apply to the bench.

Speakers:

Erin Durant, Founding Partner of Durant Barristers

Robyn Doolittle, Journalist at the Globe and Mail

Neha Chugh, Founder at Chugh Law, LSO Bencher

Anna Matas, Litigator, Gillian Hnatiw & Co.

Moderated by: Jocelyn Tatebe, President of the Women's Law Association of Ontario

This free session is hosted by the Women’s Law Association of Ontario  in partnership with The Law Society of Ontario. Visit Access to Justice Week for all events.

Have you ever wondered what the Law Society of Ontario (LSO) benchers actually do? Our panel, including benchers Atrisha Lewis and Tanya Walker, and senior lawyer Mirilyn Sharp, will provide valuable information on how benchers set policy and determine other matters related to the governance of Ontario’s lawyers and paralegals.

So you want to be a bencher? Our panelists will discuss what to consider before running for a bencher position, what it takes to run a successful campaign and what types of issues are currently being addressed by the LSO benchers.
