This presentation is about charitable services on behalf of the committee. There is great value for lawyers giving back to the community through volunteerism. This presenter is the recipient of the 2017 Gordon F. Henderson Award given by the County of Carleton Law Association for his volunteerism efforts with the Ottawa Chapter of the Lawyers Feed the Hungry program of the Ottawa Mission.

This presentation speaks directly to a lawyer's obligation as a professional to give back to his/her community and the integrity of our practice. In addition, this presentation will address work life balance principles as set out in Rule 5 and specifically 5.5.
