FACL presents “But I Look Like a Lawyer” Documentary Screening & Mixer

April 28, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Back To Events

The Victoria chapter of the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (“FACL”) BC presents this community debut of our award-winning documentary, But I Look Like a Lawyer. Please join us for a screening of this 33-minute documentary, followed by a mixer where the public and members of the Bar can engage with the Pan-Asian legal community in Victoria. Refreshments will be available.

  • When: April 28, 2023 | 5:30PM – 7:30PM
  • Where: Smith’s Pub (777 Courtney St, Victoria BC)
  • Tickets: $20 for FACL BC members | $25 for non-FACL BC members

But I Look Like a Lawyer shares stories of the discrimination, stereotyping and bias experienced by members of the Pan-Asian legal community. It aims to increase intercultural awareness and competency, and to surface the complexity of the historical, socio-economic and colonial aspects of these real lived experiences.

Everyone can enjoy this thought-provoking documentary, which has been widely screened in law firms and law schools all over Canada. Recently, it was selected for screening at the 26th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival.
