This event will feature five Black panelists from diverse background that occupy various positions within the legal profession. They will be there to discuss the challenges they have encountered as Black lawyers within the profession. They will also offer tips on how, as law students, we can prepare for and overcome these challenges.
Our panelists include:
- Roger Rowe, Co-Founder of the Canadian Association of Black Lawyers (CABL) and current McMurtry Visiting Clinical Fellow at Osgoode
- Darren Thorne, Counsel to the Deputy Attorney General of Ontario and Adjunct Professor at Osgoode
- Camille Dunbar, Commercial Lawyer and instructor of Osgoode’s Lawyer as a Negotiator course and former BLSA Osgoode Co-President
- Mara Clarke, Director of Outreach/Strategic Initiatives at Ontario Justice Education Network (OJEN)
This event is intended to provide a safe space specifically for Black law students to engage in discussions surrounding the intersections of race, gender, and other underrepresented identities within the legal profession.
Lunch will be provided. Looking forward to see everyone there!
