Fillmore Riley helps shape The 2012 Isaac Pitblado Lectures.
Fillmore Riley’s K. Eleanor Wiebe, Q.C., is acting as co-chair of The 2012 Isaac Pitblado Lectures with Chief Justice Glenn Joyal, Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench.
The prestigious lecture series will be held in Winnipeg on November 30 and December 1, 2012. The topic, “Legal Boundaries in a Global World,” focuses on the challenges and opportunities faced by Manitoba lawyers.
Eleanor was selected as co-chair because of her extensive involvement in the legal community and her volunteer activities with the Canadian Bar Association’s International Development Programs in both Laos and Cambodia.
E. Beth Eva, a partner at Fillmore Riley, is one of the senior lawyers invited to participate in the lectures. Beth has authored and will present her paper on “The Challenges of Conflicting Laws in a Global Setting.”
The series, jointly presented by The Law Society of Manitoba, the Manitoba Bar Association and the Faculty of Law, University of Manitoba, is almost sold out.
