2017 Spring Celebration

The AWL’s annual Spring Celebration presents a unique opportunity to bring together new members of the Law Society of Alberta, the AWL community and members of the judiciary to recognize and celebrate this important rite of passage in a lawyer’s life. All new female 2016 calls are invited to attend and are individually recognized and celebrated as they pass from articling students to lawyers.

On May 12, 2017, the AWL had the pleasure of welcoming the Honourable Kathleen Ganley, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General, as the guest of honour.

Minister Ganley spoke both of her experiences as a junior lawyer, sharing anecdotes of her time at the beginning of her career as well as her experience in her current role as the Province’s most senior lawyer.

The AWL wishes to thank all of its members who took time out of their busy schedules to attend, as well as the volunteers who made this event a success.

Thanks are also extended to Gowling WLG LLP for graciously providing the space for hosting the event and sponsoring all of the catering.

It was a packed house for the AWL’s 2017 Spring Celebration.
