THE ADVOCATE 159
VOL. 77 PART 1 JANUARY 2019
Connor Bildfell is a law clerk at the Supreme Court of Canada and somehow
still manages to spend time not only copy editing the Advocate but also
writing articles for us! He previously clerked at the British Columbia Court
of Appeal and finished his articles at McCarthy Tétrault in Vancouver
before dashing off to Ottawa to relax for a bit.
Georgialee Lang sings (opera no less!), acts, writes, rides motorcycles, skis,
travels, cooks gourmet meals and somehow finds time to practise law,
mediate and arbitrate family law disputes. Georgialee has received awards
for pro bono service, being a leading woman lawyer and her law blog <lawdiva.

school at Oxford University, began his career in London, and recently moved
home to Vancouver. Kevin’s pro bono activities have included work in the
areas of children in armed conflict, EU human rights and Canon law, none of
which seem to arise often in his day-to-day practice, but he’ll be ready when
they do. During a misspent youth, he worked as a bartender in Paris.
