We want to congratulate the twenty-six lawyers who have been recognized with the King’s Counsel (KC) designation for exceptional contributions to the legal profession in British Columbia.
The provincial Cabinet appoints the King’s Counsel on the advice of the Attorney General of British Columbia from a list of nominations. Every year, the Attorney General sends a call for nominations letter to the judiciary, the Law Society of British Columbia, the Canadian Bar Association, B.C. Branch and the Trial Lawyers Association. Candidates for nomination must have belonged to the B.C. bar for a minimum of five years and among other things, demonstrated professional integrity, good character, and excellence in their law practice.
You can learn more about the 26 appointees here.
