Connect and celebrate internationally trained talent in Canada at Osgoode’s Internationally Trained Lawyers Day (OITLD) on Wednesday, May 25.
Now in its eighth year, OITLD is designed to bring together diverse, internationally trained talent with experienced members of the Canadian legal community to discuss tips and strategies on how to make international training stand out in the Canadian legal landscape.
The morning sessions will run from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., providing internationally trained lawyers and law graduates with an in-depth understanding of the accreditation and licensing process. Representatives from the National Committee on Accreditation, the Law Society of Ontario and the Law Practice Program, will walk participants through the unique pathways available in reaching career goals and contributing to the Canadian legal profession.
The morning will be followed by an hour-long lunch and networking session and two panel sessions. The first panel, “Networking Works” begins at 1:15 p.m. and will discuss the importance of networking and how flexibility is key in discovering a world of new opportunities. The second panel, “The Path is Never Straight,” will take place at 2:30 p.m. and will discuss career paths and how they are not always straightforward. The session will also highlight how flexibility is crucial in planning career development.
The event will wrap up with a keynote address from Chiedza Museredza, corporate M&A lawyer at Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP at 4 p.m.
