Overview

Join us for our fourth annual Professionalism Smorgasbord, our popular roundtable on legal ethics. The session is accredited for 1 hour of professionalism CPD and 30 minutes of EDI Professionalism CPD.

Format

This session is tailored to the practice of employment and labour law by in-house counsel. For the first 60 minutes, we will review and discuss ethical dilemma scenarios in small groups and then review the applicable Rules of Professional Conduct. By the end of this session, you should not only have a better understanding of what the Rules require, but you should also feel more alive to the issues that may arise and more confident in how to address them.

This will be followed by an informative and interactive 30-minute session on “5 Equity Challenges (…and opportunities!) for Labour and Employment Lawyers”. During the session, we will experiment with ways to respond to difficult moments that often arise during discussions of equity, diversity and inclusion.

Our presenters will invite questions and will remain available after the session for any informal discussions you wish to have. These issues are challenging – collective thinking can help!
