ABOUT THIS ISSUE (151 - Winter 2017 - Diversity) 

Diversity – you’ve talked about it, perhaps even studied it in university. But, chances are your experiences in the legal profession, to date, have revolved around working within diverse practice areas, rather than considering matters of ethnic diversity, i.e. with respect to the practice of law. Work is work. People are people. Though some commonality is ever present, certain lawyers represent a client base in a way that speaks to them (and their clients) personally on a cultural basis, one that is equal parts ethical and ethnical. As society continues to educate itself as to how we can best embrace all cultures - especially here in Canada, land of the mosaic as an ideal – exploring practical matters of diversity with respect to all of society’s people is important and imperative, enlightening and enriching. This edition of the Verdict steps over the melting pot in favour of wading into diverse waters – welcoming diverse streams of thought, theory and practice.
