We are excited to announce that Life in Law is the recipient of a 2021 Canadian Law Excellence Award in the Bereskin & Parr Diversity Initiative of the Year category.
We’re even more delighted that an initiative that grew from a lightbulb moment, was launched only a year ago and nurtured along despite the pandemic has been embraced so enthusiastically by the legal community. Life in Law is a readily accessible resource for women lawyers seeking help balancing life with a legal career. It was created to help reduce the exodus of women from the legal profession, by providing them with opportunities to raise issues they face in a confidential environment. Still at the startup stage, Life in Law is sponsored and powered by Harper Grey. As this initiative grows, the vision is for other law firms and lawyers in BC and across Canada to become involved.
The Key Media Canadian Law Awards celebrate legal excellence across the country and are awarded in two phases. The first phase recognizes the top submissions in each category with an “Excellence Award”. The second phase culminates in a virtual gala on May 20, 2021 at which time the winner in each category is honoured with a “Gold Award”. You can find more details here.
