Eleven exceptional legal professionals celebrated at 2017 Law Society Awards
“Tonight’s awards are among the highest professional honours granted by the Law Society of Upper Canada,” Treasurer Paul Schabas told those attending the ceremony.
“It is important that we publicly recognize those who bring distinction and honour to our professions. In doing so, we are not only recognizing the contributions they have made, but we are also identifying them as role models to other members and reaffirming the public’s confidence and trust in our professions.”
Eleven outstanding members of Ontario’s legal professions were recognized for exceptional contributions to their communities and for careers that represent the highest level of achievement and commitment to serving the public and the profession.
