The Board of Directors of Canadian Defence Lawyers invites you to a luncheon honouring our 2017 Lee Samis Award recipient, Clarence A. Beckett QC on January 24, 2018. The event will also include presentations by notable Nova Scotia Judges, Justice Jamie W.S. Saunders of the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal and Justice Robert W. Wright of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court. Justice Saunders will present “Litigation as We Know it, May Not be in Your Future”, and Justice Wright will present “Judicial Settlement Conferences”. 

These presentations will provide one hour of professionalism education. We hope that you and your colleagues in the defence bar and the insurance community will join us to recognize Mr. Beckett's achievements at an enjoyable, informative and entertaining afternoon at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel, 1919 Upper Water Street, Halifax. The presentations begin at 11:30 am and lunch at 12:30 pm (business attire).
