It’s Award Season!
You can keep your Grammys, your Tonys, even your Oscars: Our own People’s Choice is Jessica Lyle, winner of this year’s Distinguished Service Award from Canadian Bar Association, Nova Scotia Branch. This award, given to someone who “honours, recognizes and celebrates distinguished or exceptional service that a member has made to the Nova Scotia Branch.” Jessica, a Past President and former recipient of the Constance Glube Spirit Award, has done just about every volunteer job within CBA, including the Young Lawyer’s Section, the Women’s Forum, Law Day, the Professional Development Committee – you get the picture. The Canadian Bar Association is all about lawyers supporting lawyers & judges; thus enhancing the important work we do. Jessica’s impact has been felt not only in the province but nationwide. At a time when the rule of law is strongly needed to support democracy, volunteer work that enhances the profession is both admirable and necessary. Well done, Jessica- we don’t need to tell you to keep up the good work because we know you will!
