Re-elect Tanya Walker for Bencher

Practicing law has been my passion for almost thirteen years. Eight years ago, I opened my own firm, Walker Law Professional Corporation. The opportunity to be re-elected as a Bencher would allow me to continue to advance the legal profession as a spirited and passionate member of the Bar with experience to help guide our profession.

My aspirations for the future of the Law Society focus on promoting new solutions to existing and emerging issues.

Technological Innovation, Efficiency and Preparation:

Expand the Law Society Technology Task Force mandate, develop plans and studies to expand and refine technology solutions to prepare for revolutionary changes in the interface between legal technology, the profession and the public with a view to increasing efficiency (i.e. e-filing and CourtCall) and enhancing lawyer-client service while avoiding difficulties such as breach of cybersecurity and privacy.

Training and Mentorship for Junior Lawyers:

Promote and expand initiatives that offer mentorship opportunities for junior lawyers through education and a permanent mentorship committee at the Law Society.

Fiscal Prudence:

I am committed to maintaining Law Society fees at the present level and identifying efficiencies in Law Society operations to accomplish that commitment.

Diversity:

Diversity is a significant and important commitment of the Law Society and the lawyers of Ontario in service to the Ontario public. In the areas of service, recruitment and retention, I will continue that effort.

If re-elected I will devote myself to the improvement of existing issues and the development of solutions for new matters as they arise.
