The Gala gives advocates the opportunity to join members of the British Columbia Bench and Bar for an exclusive evening of collegiality. It provides an opportunity to connect outside the courtroom with old friends, meet some new friends and help celebrate excellence in advocacy, Vancouver style.
This event is open exclusively to members, non-member lawyers, and law school and articling students.
The Gala is comprised of a cocktail reception, 3-course dinner with wine, an after-party and an unforgettable evening with your peers.
Once again Heuristica is pleased to sponsor the Laskin, Canada’s only annual national bilingual moot court competition.
The Laskin is an annual moot court competition that deals with Canadian administrative and constitutional law issues. The competition is named in memory of one of Canada’s greatest legal scholars and jurists, the late Chief Justice Bora Laskin.
The Laskin aims to provide a unique opportunity for law students, judges, law professors and practitioners from across Canada to meet and debate problems of current importance in the law. Its goals are to:
foster a better and deeper understanding of the law
support and encourage legal education and bilingualism
promote in the legal community a spirit of cooperation and understanding that transcends linguistic and provincial boundaries.
