“I have been a member of the Institute for 39 years. It has always been integral to my professional development as a lawyer both in private practice and government. I found membership particularly useful as a legal policy officer with the Department of Justice and as Crown Counsel. For example, committee membership enabled me to develop an appreciation of practical issues and concerns facing the profession. On a number of occasions this helped inform my policy advice.”

John Lynch, Special Counsel, IBAC
