Re-elect Tanya Walker for BencherApril 1, 2019
For three years as an elected Bencher, I have devoted myself to the work of the Law Society on behalf of the public interest by assisting with governing lawyers and paralegals. I ask for your support to continue that work.
On a professional note, practicing law has been my passion for 13 years, 9 of which I have spent fashioning my own law firm with 4 lawyers and paralegals. We are attentive to our clients, involved in legal issues in this election and engage in public service. I bring this passion in seeking your vote to be re-elected as Bencher in this election.
If re-elected I will devote myself to the further refinement of existing issues and development of solutions for new matters as they arise.
Technological Innovation, Efficiency and Preparation: Expand the Law Society Technology Task Force mandate, develop plans and studies to expand and refine technology solutions to prepare for revolutionary changes in the interface between legal technology, the profession and the public with a view to increasing efficiency (i.e. e-filing and CourtCall) and enhancing lawyer-client service while avoiding difficulties such as breach of cybersecurity and privacy.
Training and Mentorship for Junior Lawyers: Promote and expand initiatives that offer mentorship opportunities for junior lawyers through education and a permanent mentorship committee at the Law Society.
Fiscal Prudence: I am committed to maintaining Law Society fees at the present level and identifying efficiencies in Law Society operations to accomplish that commitment.
Diversity: Diversity is a significant and important commitment of the Law Society and the lawyers of Ontario in service to the Ontario public. In the areas of service, recruitment and retention, I will continue that effort.
