Craig Ferris Quoted in The Lawyer's Daily Article on the Law Society of British Columbia's Five Year Strategic Plan
Lawson Lundell partner, Craig Ferris, QC, FCIArb., in his capacity as President of the Law Society of British Columbia (LSBC), was quoted in an article by The Lawyer's Daily about the LSBC's recently approved five year strategic plan. The LSBC's 2021-2025 strategic plan was approved at their December 4 meeting.
Craig is passing the torch to current first vice-president Dean Lawton, who will take over as President of the LSBC in January 2021.
Following an eventful 2020, Craig commented on the future of the law society by saying, “election of lawyers based on population has provided us with a history of geographic diversity around the table, but not much else.” He added, “I don’t know what the right answer is, but I think the benchers need to ask whether this is the best way to populate the bencher table and whether it allows for a diversity of views and allows us to have a skills-based bencher table.”
