The Madam Justice Project

The national Section of the Women Lawyers Forum (“WLF”) brings together women lawyers and law students to promote women’s stature and influence in the legal profession in Canada, to create programs and networking opportunities that support women lawyers, and to advocate for change in the legal profession, the justice system and Canadian society at large.

As part of this mandate, the WLF (in collaboration with the CBA Judges Section) created the Madam Justice project in 2021. Featuring interviews with diverse women judges from across the country, the Madam Justice project highlights the different paths that led each judge to the Bench and provides candid advice for lawyers looking to improve their advocacy skills or to pursue a career as a judge.

Check out the profiles of the 45 women judges who have participated so far, and stay tuned as more interviews are coming soon!
