UPDATE ON CLEBC’S TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION INITIATIVES: CALL FOR
CLEBC continues to be committed to implementing the recommendations
of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, particularly Call to Action
Number 27 regarding legal education.
One of the goals in CLEBC’s Truth and Reconciliation Action Plan (online
at <www.cle.bc.ca/truth-and-reconciliation-action-plan>) is to involve
Indigenous lawyers actively in our work, in creating and delivering courses
and in developing legal materials.
In this update, we issue this invitation to members of the Indigenous bar
who wish to volunteer to be involved in the work of CLEBC.
CLEBC is open to new ideas and committed to integrating discussion of
Indigenous laws into our courses and content.
We are asking Indigenous lawyers, judges, leaders and academics to identify
whether you want to be involved in our work. By sharing your knowledge,
you can establish yourself as a leader, boost your public profile,
enhance your education and receive CPD credits.
CLEBC operates in six core areas: Family, Criminal, Real Estate, Wills &
Estates, Litigation and Business. We have different opportunities that arise
to contribute to the work CLEBC does in providing quality professional education
to the legal community.
CLEBC is a not-for-profit society, and all of our contributors are volunteers.
If you are interested in participating, please e-mail Teresa Sheward,
program lawyer, at <email@example.com> or complete our web form at
