Professionalism Series

The Inns of Court – Victoria and the Victoria Bar Association are returning this very popular program to be held over a series of lunches. This Program Is For Junior Lawyers

In 2003, Justice McEachern and Michael Goldie Q.C. wrote a paper on Ethical and Professional Responsibilities. In many ways, the paper has evolved to become a touchstone for the practice while providing invaluable guidance for young lawyers. 

In our community, many young lawyers are expressing their concern for the lack of mentorship. In addition, more senior counsel are noticing an erosion of ethical and professional standards in young counsel.  

In an attempt to provide a forum for discussions about these issues to take place, we propose hosting a series of lunches where young lawyers can first review Justice McEachern’s paper, then discuss these issues in a Socratic environment.

You can find the topics to be discussed and details of the program here.

Lawyers Doing Other Things?

If you know of a lawyer in Victoria who does interesting things with his or her time outside of work, or if YOU are a lawyer who has a life outside of law, we'd like to hear about it! Do you volunteer for a charitable organization and want to share information about it?  Do you play in a band?  We are going to be featuring a number of lawyers in upcoming editions The Praecipe, and would love to hear from you.
