The Law Society is churning out some worthwhile events right now. One more we thought we’d highlight is the forum to examine the Indian Residential Schools adjudication process, a part of the Equity Public Education Series. The symposium takes place on National Aboriginal Day and will mark the one-year anniversary of Stephen Harper’s apology to former students of residential schools. At issue will be the role of the Aboriginal Bar and the legal profession in the current adjudication process, the goals of the adjudication Secretariat, and how the settlement agreement (incidentally, the largest class action settlement in Canada ever) will be used.

Admission to the symposium and reception is free.
