We are proud to note that as of September 1, our colleague Frank Friesacher began serving as the President of the Canadian Bar Association – Alberta Branch for the 2018-2019 term. Frank will spend the next year maintaining his busy family law and estate litigation practice, while also working to better our profession through his leadership with CBA Alberta.
The Canadian Bar Association is the leader and voice of Canada’s legal profession, promoting fair justice systems, facilitating effective law reform, upholding equality in the legal profession and being devoted to eliminating discrimination. It is also a premiere provider of quality training and information to members of the legal profession. The Alberta Branch represents some 5,000 lawyers, judges, law teachers and law students from across Alberta. Approximately two-thirds of all practicing lawyers in Canada belong to the CBA.
