Speakers at this August 14th session, entitled "Supporting Women in Law," were Supreme Court Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin, Eugene Meehan, Linda Robertson, and David Matas.

I just caught part of this today on my lunch break. Really good stuff.

It seemed like a good critical and constructive discussion on the changed that the legal profession need to make, to be more inclusive and supportive.

One of the panelist spoke about how the culture of most Law firms is unhealthy, adn quoted some stats abouteh High rates of depression, alchohol and other susbatance abuse amongs both male and female lawyers.
