2020 OBA Section Elections – Elder Law & ADR
I hope to be re-elected as a Member-At-Large in the Elder Law section and I am running for the same position in the ADR section.
In the last year, as a Member-At-Large in the Elder Law section, I have assisted in elder law programs and spearheaded working groups to advocate for changes in Guardianship and regulation, inspection and funding for Long Term Care Homes. I look forward to the opportunity to continue to work on programming to educate, advocate and improve access to justice for the elderly community.
I am passionate about dispute resolution and have chosen to study a Masters of Law in Dispute Resolution at Osgoode Hall Law School. As an estate litigator in Toronto, I have seen first-hand the benefits of mandatory mediation. Due to the courts closing, there is a huge interest in ADR and I would look forward to the opportunity to advocate the alternative ways parties can resolve their legal issues.
I am currently a Council member for the OBA representing international lawyers. I hope to continue to work with the OBA and legal community and I appreciate your support!
The link to vote can be found here and the deadline to vote is June 12, 2020.
Thank you to our lawyers and front-line workers who are working to protect all of us be it our health or our rights!
We appreciate all you do for Toronto and wider community.
