Federation of Law Societies of Canada: Policy Counsel (2)
The Federation of Law Societies of Canada (FLSC) is the national coordinating body of the 14 law societies that regulate Canada’s 100,000 lawyers, Quebec’s 4,000 notaries and Ontario’s 7,500 licensed paralegals in the public interest. As part of its pan-Canadian mandate, the Federation carries out a range of initiatives on behalf of its members that relate to national standards of regulation to ensure that all Canadians are served by a competent, honourable and independent legal profession. flsc.ca
The Federation is hiring two policy counsel to play a key role in the development of policy on a wide range of matters at the core of the Federation’s mandate and to support national initiatives and projects related to regulation of the legal profession. Duties will include conducting research, monitoring and analysing legislative initiatives and regulatory developments, preparing briefing materials, reports and submissions and providing input and advice on government relations.
Candidates must be, or be eligible to be, a member in good standing of a Canadian law society. Ideally one lawyer will have 6-10 years of relevant experience, and the other will have 1-5 years of experience.
Experience in a professional regulatory or association environment would be desirable. Candidates must possess exceptional written and verbal communication skills, superior analytical skills, sound judgment and a strong team orientation.
