Vacancies – Nova Scotia Supreme Court Family Division Liaison Committee

The Supreme Court of Nova Scotia (Family Division) Liaison Committee is seeking to fill vacant membership positions on its regional subcommittees.

The committee and its new subcommittees provides a means for ongoing liaison and communication between the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia (Family Division) and the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society about matters of mutual concern and interest and provide an avenue for the Bench and Bar to meet and work towards improvements in practice. 

Diversity on committees is a priority.  We welcome applications from all equity-deserving groups including but not limited to Indigenous People, African Nova Scotians and other racially visible persons.  We also welcome applications from persons with disabilities and persons deserving equality on the basis of their sexual orientation and gender identity. 

Given the recent expansion of the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia (Family Division), we welcome applications from lawyers practicing throughout the province to ensure regional contribution on issues affecting the court. 

Please direct all inquiries to Jane Willwerth at JWillwerth@nsbs.org on or before July 29, 2022.
