Three firm members participate in Law Society conference

May 25, 2011 - Toronto - Marshall Swadron, Mercedes Perez and Kelley Bryan of Swadron Associates all took part in the Law Society of Upper Canada's 2011 New Lawyer Practice Series Program on Administrative Law held today at the Donald Lamont Lecture Hall at Osgoode Hall.

Mr. Swadron was co-chair of the program together with Neil M. Abramson of the law firm Torkin Manes LLP. He also delivered a paper written by former Swadron Associates lawyer, Suzan E. Fraser, on the subject of remedies in administrative law including Charter remedies. Ms. Fraser was unable to deliver the paper in person when an emergency motion in the Divisional Court intervened.

Kelley Bryan delivered her paper entitled There Ought to be RulesĀ on sources of procedural requirements before administrative tribunals. Mercedes Perez's paper entitled Capacity to Instruct Counsel addressed the sometimes complex issues of professionalism that can arise between lawyers and their clients in an administrative tribunal context.

Other speakers at the conference included Law Society bencher Raj Anand, LSM, of WeirFoulds LLP, Bernie LeBlanc of Steinecke Maciura LeBlanc and, filling in on short notice, bencher Chris Bredt of Borden Ladner Gervias LLP.
