Former Chief Justice Thomas Cromwell joined members of the Cape Breton Bar Society for breakfast on Oct. 6 to share his thoughts on the challenges of providing access to justice. He asserted that judges, lawyers and leaders in the legal community need to have more action-led research and less trial discovery, and that they must put the public first.
Also in attendance were Nova Scotia Chief Justice Michael MacDonald ('79), Heather de Berdt Romilly ('89), the executive director at Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia, and Dean Camille Cameron of the Schulich School of Law. The event was hosted by the Schulich School of Law at the Membertou Trade and Convention Centre in Sydney, N.S.
