FAREWELL TO SUSAN MUNRO,
DIRECTOR OF PUBLICATIONS
After almost 30 years at CLEBC, our director of
publications Susan Munro has announced her
retirement, effective August 6, 2018.
Susan’s CLEBC career began in 1988 when she
was hired as practice material editor for PLTC, a
part of CLEBC at the time.
In 1990 Susan became a legal editor, working
on some of CLEBC’s earliest publications. After
editing her first publication, the BC Mortgages Practice Manual, Susan went
on to develop numerous new titles including BC PPSA Practice Manual, the
Real Estate Development Practice Manual, the Civil Trial Handbook and many
more. With her contributions, along with those of many committed authors
and editorial boards, the publications department was able to achieve its
ambitious goal of publishing practice manuals in every major B.C. practice
area. In 2003 Susan was promoted to her current position.
Susan’s proudest achievement at CLEBC was helping to educate the B.C.
legal profession about the Business Corporations Act. She worked with a
team of dedicated lawyers under the leadership of the late John O.E.
Lundell, Q.C., to create the BC Company Law Practice Manual. In addition,
she is incredibly proud of her highly professional and collegial publications
Over three decades, Susan has observed the world move into an Internet
age where information is consumed differently and online education is on
