The Speakers List includes eminent lawyers, judges, and legal academics who have expressed their willingness to participate in, or speak at, professionalism events. We hope that the following list is a useful resource in indentifying potential speakers, participants, or professionals with an interest in this area. The list is organized alphabetically.
We cannot guarantee that any or all of the listed speakers will be available or willing to participate at an event. In addition, please note that speakers may require reimbursement of expenses, an honorarium, per diems, or other compensation in exchange for speaking at, or participating in, events. You must contact speakers directly to discuss availability and other considerations.
Additionally, please note that participation of any or all of the listed speakers does not guarantee that the event will be accredited by your respective law society.
If you have any other questions or comments about the Speakers List, please feel free to contact the Centre for the Legal Profession.
