    One of the ways FACL BC wants to be of service to our members is by providing a weekly forum to those in our community to speak on a variety of topics relevant to this period of COVID-19. We’ll do this through a weekly 30 min. session hosted by a member from our executive committee.

    We know that you are inundated with information and events at this time so we plan to keep this crisp and focused. Each week will cover a different topic and feature a special guest related to the topic.

    You can choose to register and attend one or more sessions. All sessions run from 12:30 - 1:00pm (30 min.).

    Session 1. Friday, May 1 - Xenophobia: Lessons from the past with Judge Maryka Omatsu (Ont Court of Justice; FACL — Founder)

    Session 2. Friday, May 8 - Anxiety/Mental Health: Navigating through change and breaking the stigma with Winston Sayson Q.C. (Crown Counsel / Trial Prosecutor at BC Public Service)

    Session 3. Friday, May 22 - Economy/Business: What is on the horizon? The economic impact of COVID-19 with Yin Liang (Regional Sales Manager at BMO Wealth Management) and Daniel Lau (Managing Director at LM Asset Management)

    Session 4. Friday, May 29 - Legal Tech: The future of our practice with Jeremy Hessing-Lewis (Founder of Small Law) and Matthew Peters (National Innovation Leader, Partner at McCarthy Tétrault)
