I'm very happy to announce that the Canadian Bar Association's CBA National has published my Op-Ed on how we can change the narrative around internationally trained law graduates (ITLGs) and internationally trained lawyers (ITLs) in Canada to improve diversity and break-down employment barriers.
It's been an absolute pleasure working with the CBA editorial team and I can't thank them enough for giving internationals—like myself and the many people I spoke with while writing this piece—a voice in the Canadian legal market. My hope is that increased dialogue in Canada around internationally trained lawyers and law students will start to build bridges between Canadian legal markets and international degree holders.
