FACL BC: “But I Look Like a Lawyer” Documentary

The Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers BC (FACL BC) is premiering its mini-documentary, “But I Look Like a Lawyer”, on Friday, November 5, 2021 from 12:30 – 1:30 pm at a virtual Zoom event. This premiere will be livestreamed in Room 101 at Allard.

The mini-documentary highlights the discrimination, stereotyping and bias experienced by members of the pan-Asian legal community. FACL BC’s goal is to strive for change and to recognize and eliminate unconscious biases and discrimination within the legal community. The documentary also aims to bring renewed attention to the original But I Was Wearing a Suit documentary (and its Part II), spearheaded by a group of leaders in the Indigenous legal community.

Opening remarks by Dean LawtonQC, President, Law Society of British Columbia and Hasan Alam, President, FACL BC.
