A unique opportunity to listen to The Honourable Thomas Cromwell share his perspective on moving from bench to bar. He will offer keen insight on the transition from Canada’s top court back to practice, a reversal of the more familiar tale of bar to bench, delivered with his usual light-hearted wit.
Justice Cromwell served in the Supreme Court of Canada from 2008 to 2016. Prior to this, he was a judge with the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal from 1997 to 2008. He became a companion of the Order of Canada in December 2017 for his “illustrious service as a Supreme Court justice, and for his leadership in improving access to justice for all Canadians.”
Justice Cromwell is currently Senior Counsel at Borden Ladner Gervais in Ottawa and Vancouver.
