Public Sector Lawyering: Ethical Frameworks for Practice Within the Legislative, Executive and Judicial Branches of Government

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROGRAM WILL BE DELIVERED IN ENGLISH. SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETATION IN FRENCH WILL BE AVAILABLE.

Public sector lawyers play an essential role in upholding the rule of law as applied in our constitutional democracy. These lawyers work in the public interest in the institutional settings of the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government at federal, provincial and territorial levels. Public sector lawyers must adhere to their professional code of conduct, as well as public law and public service duties and constitutional principles.

Join us for a two-part series on the legal and ethical framework as well as the practice of public sector lawyering – these sessions are not to be missed! Our faculty will share valuable insights from their experience in the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of government, each with their own constitutional distinctions.

This series is free for CCCA/CBA members, and $50 per webinar for non-members.
