We are pleased to announce that Toronto-based construction and infrastructure law associate Webnesh Haile has been appointed to the Advocates’ Society’s Young Advocates Standing Committee (“YASC”) for the upcoming 2019-2020 term.

The Advocates’ Society is a national organization which serves as the voice of advocates, intervening in court cases that impact the profession, making submissions on legislation and policy, and providing high-quality CPD, community-building and networking opportunities for the litigation bar.

YASC represents advocates within their first ten years of call, providing young advocates with a platform to contribute to the work of the Advocates’ Society. YASC organizes networking and mentoring events, publishes articles by and for young advocates, connects young advocates with volunteer opportunities, contributes to the advocacy initiatives of the Advocates’ Society, and works to ensure that issues of concern to young advocates are addressed – both within the Society and the profession at large.
