Litigation as Storytelling: R v Desaultel and the Recognition of the Sinixt
As lawyers, we may not think of our work as storytelling, but deeply embedded in the role of the lawyer and in the litigation process is a call to tell the stories that matter to our clients. Lawyers translate their clients’ truths and experiences to make meaning through the law, and in turn, the law becomes a part of, or reshapes those stories, with a potential to transform community identity and futures. Nowhere is this more evident than in the adjudication of Indigenous rights and title. Join West Coast LEAF and the CBABC for a webinar discussion about R v Desaultel and the role of litigation in revitalizing Sinixt identity and community.
