Call for Volunteers: Uniform Law Conference of Canada - BC Civil Section Delegation

  • July 20, 2020

CBABC will appoint a lawyer to join the BC Civil Section delegation to the Uniform Law Conference of Canada (ULCC) at the virtual annual meeting from August 9 to 13, 9am – 12:15pm Pacific.

The ULCC assembles government policy lawyers and analysts, private lawyers, and law reformers to consider areas in which provincial, territorial and federal laws could be harmonized across the country.  The main work of the Civil Section is reflected in “uniform statutes,” which the Section adopts and recommends for enactment by all relevant governments in Canada.

The Annual Meeting will be held virtually. Topics to be reviewed include non-disclosure of intimate images, e-wills, the Uniform Benevolent and Community Crowdfunding Act, and future projects.

The appointee must be available to attend all three days of meetings, read the advance meeting materials, and contribute to the discussion including suggestions for future projects. Ideally, the appointee will choose a project of the Civil Section to work on throughout the year with the pan-Canadian working groups.

Those who wish to be considered for this volunteer opportunity must be CBA members and must maintain CBA membership for the duration of the appointment to August 31, 2021.

Please submit expressions of interest to CBABC Executive Director Kerry L. Simmons, QC at ea@cbabc.org by Friday, July 31.
