The Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (British Columbia) Society (“FACL BC”) is excited to announce the launch of the inaugural issue of its journal and is now inviting submissions for publication. 

The volunteer-run journal is published by FACL BC, with funding from the Law Foundation of British Columbia. The purpose of the FACL BC Journal (“Journal”) is to provide a space for contributors and readers to engage with and share content about the legal issues and topics relevant to the pan-Asian Canadian community in British Columbia. The Journal aims to publish content that includes but is not limited to:

  • local news in British Columbia that aligns with FACL BC’s mandate to promote equity, justice, and opportunity for the pan-Asian Canadian legal community;
  • case comments; 
  • op-eds;
  • legal updates; 
  • interviews with legal professionals; 
  • statements published by the FACL BC Advocacy Committee; and
  • other FACL BC content at the discretion of the FACL BC Board.
