The Ontario Justice Education Network (OJEN) is pleased to partner with the Black Female Lawyers Network (BFLN) to offer Sistahs-in -Law: Paving the Way, a day-long educational opportunity for high school aged girls on Monday, November 11, 2019 from 8:30am to 5:00pm held at the historic St. James Cathedral Centre, 65 Church Street, Toronto. The theme of this year’s Sistahs-in-law retreat and fundraiser is Justice in Action.

Students will be matched with a Big Sistah, a black woman, currently working in law who will act as their guide for the day, introducing them to other Sistahs in Law while answering questions and providing support throughout the program. In addition to attending 2 sessions with their Big Sistah, participants will attend an inspirational session specifically designed for the high school aged audience entitled My Journey to a Career in Law, where lawyers from a variety of legal practices will share their experiences with the students and answer their questions about being a black woman in law. The program has been made possible thanks to sponsorship by individual justice sector professionals.

While we welcome all applications, first time applicants will be given preference. Please note: registration may close earlier than the date stated once all candidate spots have been filled. Thus, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible.

November 11th, 2019 8:30 AM   through   5:00 PM
