Globalaw Foundation supports CBABC Aboriginal Lawyers Forum

  • June 21, 2024

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada: – The Globalaw Foundation is proud to support the Aboriginal Lawyers Forum Warrior Project, which helps fund articling positions for Indigenous students in British Columbia. As part of its Americas Regional Meeting (GLARM) in Vancouver, Canada, Globalaw donated CAD $10,000 to invest in future legal warriors.  

The Aboriginal Lawyers Forum (ALF) is part of the Canadian Bar Association BC Branch (CBABC), the professional organization representing over 8,000 lawyers, judges and law students in British Columbia.

Randy Robinson, an Anishinaabe lawyer in public service and past chair of the CBABC ALF, received the generous donation at the GLARM welcome cocktail reception at the Vancouver Club. Foundation Committee Member, Maria Romero of Gunster, and Globalaw President, Peter Brown from Edwards, Kenny & Bray LLP, presented the donation.

Christina J. Cook, founder and co-chair of the Aboriginal Lawyers Forum, stated: “We are so grateful for the donation and support from the Globalaw Foundation. This donation will go directly to support an Indigenous articling student, through the Warrior Project, which we created with the goal of increasing the number of Indigenous lawyers and access to justice for Indigenous clients. All the lawyers of the ALF raise our hands to and sincerely thank the Globalaw Foundation for its support of Indigenous people in the law. The ALF is also grateful to our past chair Randy Robinson for attending this event and representing us in a good way.”

Globalaw Foundation Member, Maria Romero, added: “The Globalaw Foundation is extremely honored to be able to support the Warrior Project. With the meeting hosted in Vancouver, it was particularly fitting for the Foundation to help fund articling positions for Indigenous students seeking their legal education and developing their careers. The Foundation remains committed to giving back to communities and organizations in need, with a focus on legal education and access to justice.”
