As the complexity of today's business world continues to increase, issues involving legal ethics facing in-house counsel continue to evolve. Like previous years, we have the pleasure of presenting a panel comprised of in-house counsel and representatives of The Law Society of British Columbia.
Join us for an interactive discussion about current ethical issues, risk mitigation and practical solutions. We will also focus on how ESG, jurisdictional differences and protecting privilege impact decision-making.
Attendees will be encouraged to participate in the discussion and are invited to submit suggested topics or scenarios in advance of the presentation.
Michael Lucas, Q.C., Director, Policy and Planning, The Law Society of British Columbia
Ken Prichard, Senior Counsel, British Columbia Investment Management Corporation
