: Stewart McKelvey lawyers featured in the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society Fall 2014 issue of The Society Record

November 24, 2014

Level Chan, Maurice Chiasson, QC and Jennifer Taylor are included in the latest issue of the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society magazine, The Society Record.

Jennifer Taylor co-authored the article, "Legal Research: Staying in control, on budget and in the know" with NSBS librarian Deborah Copeman. Within this piece, Jennifer and Deborah discuss tips for cost-effective, efficient legal research as well as the tools needed for a systematic approach.

Partner Maurice Chiasson, QC is highlighted in a story about the Society's Internationally Trained Lawyers Observership Program, a collaboration with Immigrant Settlement and Integration Services. The program, in its inaugural year, pairs internationally trained lawyers with local lawyers and enables them to observe local lawyers with similar interests. Maurice partnered with Godfred Chongatera, Ghana, who has since become an articled clerk at Stewart McKelvey.

Level Chan, past member of the Society's Racial Equity Committee, jointly presented Meaghan Mahadeo with the 2014 Race and Law Essay Prize from Dalhousie Schulich School of Law, for her essay titled, "What's in a name?: An Analysis of the Politics of Band Membership Codes in the Canadian Indigenous Quest for Self-Determination", which suggests the concept of "Indian" is a colonial construct.
