The FACL Conference, now in its fourth year, has become a key event on the city’s legal calendar. It brings together Asian Canadian lawyers, law students and judges to discuss important issues facing the South Asian, Southeast Asian and East Asian communities, and to learn about new legal developments in many different areas of law.

Panellists from top firms, counsel representing major corporations and public-sector lawyers from a broad range of agencies will lead discussions at this event, on November 13 at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law. The conference will be followed by a banquet dinner at Pearl Harbour Chinese Restaurant on the waterfront.

Reservations are required by November 1. Click here for more details about the conference, or to register.
