Two upcoming events will recognize the contributions to the legal profession of two distinguished women. 


The Women’s Law Association of Ontario will present its 2011 President’s Award to Laurie Pawlitza on Tuesday, June 7. The LSUC treasurer and Torkin Manes partner is being recognized for “her extraordinary contribution to the legal profession and, in particular, for her significant role in promoting the interests of women lawyers in Ontario.”

The ceremony, which also includes presentations for the WLAO’s 2011 student awards, begins at 5:45pm at The National Club in Toronto. For more details, and to register online for the awards dinner, visit the WLAO website.
