Flex Legal Network's co-founders, Erin Cowling and Ashleigh Frankel, were honoured to participate on the panel for the Women's Law Association of Ontario and the Law Society of Upper Canada's 10th Annual Diverse Careers for Women in Law event last week.
Erin and Ashleigh were joined on the panel by Isfahan Merali (Tribunal Counsel, Consent and Capacity Board & Bencher), Sarah Leece (Assistant Crown Attorney, Ministry of the Attorney General), and Caitlyn Kasper (Staff Lawyer, Aboriginal Legal Services). The panel was moderated by the current President of the WLAO and this year's recipient of the Law Society Medal, Ronda Bessner. Each of these women brought a unique and interesting perspective as we tackled some probing questions about women in the law, our challenges, and choices. Erin and Ashleigh enjoyed meeting with many of the talented women who were in the audience and are happy that some have already reached out to Flex to continue the discussions started at the event.
Flex is delighted to be featured on the podcast "On The Record" by Hassell Trial Counsel. Ashleigh Frankel was interviewed by Mick Hassell about Flex Legal Network and how our freelance lawyers assist sole practitioners, firms, and in-house legal departments. The podcast can be found here.
On The Record also includes interviews with lawyers Karen McArthur, Darryl Singer, and Jack Fireman, as well as some tips on trial fundamentals and preparing for cross-examinations.
