Society Appoints Craig Garson QC as President

The Society is pleased to announce that Craig Garson QC has been appointed President until June 2021. Mr. Garson is well known to the membership and to the Society. His career has evolved as a litigator, mediator and arbitrator over almost 40 years, with such success that his practice has expanded both nationally and internationally.

Mr. Garson served as President of the Society in 2000-2001. During his time as an Officer, he was involved with many Society committees, so he has an intimate knowledge of our regulatory mandate.

We look forward to Mr. Garson’s leadership of the Society in the coming months. He brings a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience that will enable the Society to move forward on some very important strategic initiatives including cultural competence education for all lawyers, supporting our members in their practice, and addressing barriers that affect the entry, retention, and advancement in the legal profession of members from equity seeking communities.

“It’s the Society’s regulatory objective to promote diversity, inclusion, substantive equality, and freedom from discrimination in the delivery of legal services and the justice system. One of my goals is to ensure we make significant advances in this regard.” – Craig Garson QC.
