On October 11-12, 2017, PBSC’s new Board had their first meeting.
Dean Edward Iacobucci is chairing the Board (University of Toronto Faculty of Law). The other Board members are: Dean Ian Holloway (University of Calgary), Dean Lorne Sossin (Osgoode Hall Law School),
Dean William Flanagan (Queen’s University), Dean Fernand de Varennes (University of Moncton),
Assistant Dean Alexis Archbold (University of Toronto), Leslie Ning (Mile End Legal Clinic), Sherry MacLennan (Legal Services Society), and Kirby Chown (retired from McCarthy Tétrault).
At this first meeting, the Board received a comprehensive introduction to the history, mandate and operations of Pro Bono Students Canada. Thank you to our good friends at Thomson Reuters (our national legal research partner) for sponsoring a dinner for the Board, National Office Staff, and representatives of our primary funders — the Law Foundation of Ontario and McCarthy Tétrault.
We are delighted to have this wonderful group to guide us as we move forward as a national organization! The Board next meets in February 2018.
