The beginning of a great tradition! Soby Boyden Lenz was proud to be one of the organizers of the first annual Lawyers vs. Law Students Rugby Match in October 2018. The squad was coached by SBL's own Ed McCann (former Irish National Team rugby player). Micah Chartrand (back row) is apparently still recovering from his injuries. The Lawyers Team braved the snow and came out with a victory of the Law Students. SBL looks forward to supporting the squad next year!

Held at the Courthouse every year, Law Day is a national event celebrating the signing of Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms. On Law Day, the courthouse opens its doors and facilities in an effort to teach the public about lawyers, judges and the legal profession in general. Law Day aims to educate people about Canada's legal institutions and the importance of an independent and unbiased judicial system.

The lawyers at Soby Boyden Lenz volunteer at Law Day by participating in mock trials, providing legal advice to the public, and assisting with courthouse tours.

Our lawyers participated (and sang) in this year's mock civil trial, a musical, Cinderella v Elsa Snow, the case of the missing Glass Slipper!
