The 2011 Bencher elections for the LSUC come to a close on April 29, 2011. According to an article in the Legal Post, on April 20, 2011 the Law Society announced that only 9,587 lawyers have voted; there are almost 40,000 lawyers in Ontario. If you haven't voted, do so! The process is remarkably easy and almost everything you need to know can be accessed through the LSUC's website.
Many of the candidates also have their own websites or are tied into social media such as Linkedin. If you haven't voted yet, check out Robert Wadden. Rob is an experienced, well rounded and pro-active lawyer who has been practicing for almost 20 years. Rob has recently been involved with coordinating and chairing joint educational seminars for defence and Crown lawyers including one on the hot topic of forensic pathology.
