2020 Virtual Fall Conference (Oct 29th & 30th)

With the assistance of the OBA, Thunder Bay was able to offer three half-day sessions to the membership covering the areas of advocacy, solicitor work, and EDI.  We believe this program appealed to all members, whether specializing in litigation, family, estates, criminal, labour, or corporate.

The keynote speaker at 9:00 am on October 29th was the Hon. Justice David Brown, Court of Appeal Ontario.  He spoke on the current state of litigation in Ontario, as well as commenting on the effects of COVID-19 on the courts, lawyers and their clients with the movement to virtual/online court hearings.

Kicking off the morning on October 30th was our keynote speaker, Mr. Harold Johnson, author, lawyer and former prosecutor.  He spoke eloquently on the effects of alcohol on Indigenous communities, the wider community and the justice system. The library now has a number of his recent works available for loan.
