The Inns of Court Victoria is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a 2-hour in person seminar on the topic of “Tips and Tricks for Building a Resilient Legal Career”.
Del Friday (she/her) serves as the Legal Community Liaison & Educator at the Courthouse Library.
Ms. Friday is a practicing wills & estates lawyer with over 20 years of experience. She leads the Library’s Training & Outreach Program and loves to connect lawyers, notaries, court advocates, and other legal professionals to the legal resources and training offered at the library.
Clare Asquith Finegan (she/her) serves as the Librarian for the New Westminster Courthouse Library.
Ms. Finegan graduated from UBC in 2016 with a Master of Library and Information Studies. Since 2018, Ms. Finegan has worked as a Client Services Librarian with CLBC, assisting the public and the legal community with finding and using legal information. She has worked various jobs in the arts, service industry, and many things in between, but her primary interest has always been to help people to navigate the barriers that stop them from accessing the information they need.
The panelists will be discussing about Tips and Tricks for Building a Resilient Legal Career.
In the last three years, your legal career has survived a sudden shift to virtual work, heat dome, wildfires, floods, a frenzied housing market, inflation, and rising interest rates.
How can you prepare your career for the next threat?
During this interactive workshop, you will learn how to use legal research tools and collaborative problem-solving methods to create a more resilient practice. The panelists will introduce some of the resources at the Courthouse Library you can use to build a legal career that can withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
