In April & May consider bringing a non-member buddy to a Section Meeting.  Sections provide opportunities for lawyers to further their professional education and to keep ahead of current developments within the profession. The Nova Scotia Branch wants to show non-members what they’re missing!! Your buddy must register and pay the registration fee as well – spread the word so as not to miss out on this opportunity!
