Lawson Lundell wins Lexpert Zenith Award for Pro Bono Contributions


Lawson Lundell won Gold at the Lexpert 2010 Zenith Awards honouring pro bono contributions in the Civil Liberties category for our work with the BC Civil Liberties Association ("BCCLA") in the following cases:

  • Chamberlain v. Surrey School District No. 36, 2002 SCC 86, [2002] 4 S.C.R. 710
  • Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority v. Canadian Federation of Students — British Columbia Component, 2009 SCC 31, [2009] 2 S.C.R. 295
  • Victoria (City) v. Adams, 2009 BCCA 563

Chris Sanderson , Keith Bergner and Ron Skolrood were the partners acting on these cases with invaluable assistance from lawyer, Elizabeth Clarke, former Lawson associate, Chelsea Wilson, and each of their respective assistants. We are proud of our continuing relationship with the BCCLA and the contributions that these cases have made to developments in Canadian jurisprudence.

The Lexpert 2010 Zenith Awards honour Canadian law firms, in-house departments and law students who commit their time, skills and mentorship to a diverse and valuable range of pro bono activities.

The awards were handed out on September 28, 2010 at a banquet held in Toronto.
