Women & the Law Dinner 2015

Clark Wilson had a full table in attendance at the 38th annual Women & the Law Dinner. Lawyers from our firm spent the evening with Clark Wilson students as well as other UBC law students.  Keynote speaker this year was Ms. Sue Paish, President and CEO of LifeLabs Medical Laboratory Services. Clark Wilson is happy to sponsor this event and join in the recognition of women’s contributions to all areas of law as well as participate in supporting the organization chosen by UBC through a silent auction. This year PACE society of Vancouver was the organization supported by these fundraising efforts.
