Mark Baker and Patrick Sloan will be representing Ferguson Barristers this year at the Law Society’s Symposium and Career Fair, “Articling and Beyond”
scheduled for next Friday afternoon, November 18th, 2011 in Toronto. The program is designed to give law students and recently called lawyers the opportunity to learn more about practicing law in smaller firms and smaller communities in Ontario.
Mark will be a member of the Panel which begins the afternoon with a discussion about how to find and create opportunities in smaller firms and communities. Following this discussion, participants will attend various workshops, attend the Career Fair and then attend a Networking Reception.
To encourage participation and make the experience as valuable as possible, Articling and Beyond has created a Facebook page to invite attendees to connect before the symposium and to vote for the workshops they would like to see on the program.
Potential Workshops include:
- Life in a Small Firm or Small Community
- Joining And/Or Taking Over An Established Practice
- Women Lawyers in Private Practice
- Living & Working in Northern Ontario
- Living and Practising Law in a French Speaking Community
The final Agenda for the Workshops is scheduled to be posted on the Facebook page.
Both Mark and Patrick are looking forward to the Symposium and encourage all of the participants to drop by the Ferguson Barristers display table at the Career Fair.
