HCLA Scholarship Recipients

The HCLA is excited to announce the release of The Legalese – Summer 2023 edition! You can find this edition on the website under the tab, Legalese. This is the fifth edition of The Legalese since its relaunch in Spring 2020. The Legalese has a long tradition of serving as the HCLA’s newsletter. It has been an important way to share community events, member profiles, and news both from our local Greek legal community and abroad. The Legalese is published on a semi-annual basis. We encourage all members to contribute or to reach out to us at hcla.information@gmail.com with any ideas, news or feedback for future editions. We hope that you enjoy and look forward to your future submissions!

Please note that this service is available for members only.

Law Student Resume Review

In celebration of the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III, the Ontario government is returning to the tradition of recognizing Ontario lawyers with the honorary title of King’s Counsel. The King’s Counsel designation is given to lawyers who have demonstrated a commitment to the pursuit of legal excellence in service to the Crown, the public and their communities. Ontario rejoins many of its provincial counterparts and other Commonwealth jurisdictions in observing this practise. Congratulations to all recipients and in particular: Nancy Athanasia Krigas, Jeanie Theoharis and Eustachia Jeanne Triantafilopoulos!
