Beyond the sessions at the CBA

|Written By Gail J. Cohen

Hundreds of lawyers, judges, and others with a great interest in the legal profession attended the annual legal conference in Halifax from Aug. 14 to 16 that included the annual meetings of the Candian Bar Association and Canadian Corporate Counsel Association's annual meetings as well the judge's day conference. During the day attendees participated in a host of meetings, professional development sessions, a bearpit session with Justice Minister Rob Nicholson and speeches from the likes of Arianna Huffington and Dragon's Den judge Arlene Dickinson.

But where Halifax really shone was after the official business of the day was done. Legal Feeds attended receptions hosted by law firms Wickwire Holm, Burchells LLP, Blois Nickerson & Bryson LLP, Cox & Palmer, McInnes Cooper, Stewart McKelvey, and Boyne Clarke LLP. All had great seafood impressing party goers with barbecued lobster, sauteed shrimp, filet of beef, fish and chips right from the truck, pan-fried scallops and more. Not to be outdone by the law firms, the chief justices and judges of Nova Scotia also hosted a bash serving up some fine lobster stew. It's safe to say, a good time was had by all.
