"There is an incredibly fine line between good advocacy and intellectual dishonesty. As litigators, we must be vigilant to ensure that we never cross that line. Fight hard, fight fair, and do your best to walk away friends with your opponents." Great evening at the Lee Samis Award Dinner on Feb 5th in Toronto. Read more about it.

Jan Lindsay of Lindsay LLP in Vancouver is a long time CDL member and the tenth recipient of the Lee Samis Award of Excellence. Mother of four children, Jan is a role model for other women lawyers and she speaks often about how she has made it work. When asked what she plans to accomplish as president of the Law Society, Jan is very quick to answer. “It’s got to be access, and it has to be action.” Read more about Jan in the Winter Issue of the Benchers Bulletin.
