“We’ve been faced with some pretty significant problems to solve recently, including the concerning results of the articling student survey, navigating the pandemic, refining our CPD program, addressing the applicable TRC Calls to Action, transitioning internationally trained lawyers to Alberta practice, and working toward a profession that is equitable, diverse and inclusive. It’s clear that there is more work to do in all of these areas – and maybe even a lot of work – but we’re making progress that I’m extremely proud of.”
