Megan Seto Launches FACL Atlantic
February 24, 2014
Congratulations to Articled Clerk, Megan Seto, founding officer of the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (“FACL”), on the official launch and appointment as Executive Director of the Atlantic Chapter.
Established in 2007, FACL is an organization that raises awareness and promotes equity, justice, and opportunity for other Asian Canadian legal professionals and the community at large. The addition of the Atlantic Chapter completes FACL as an official national organization, which is the North Eastern affiliate of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (“NAPABA”), an organization of over 40,000 lawyers worldwide.
“Not only did we complete the pan-Canadian vision of FACL, but we are proud of the opportunity to advance the inspired goals of our early community leaders, like Justice Maryka Omatsu, and Justice Linda Oland, alumni from our very own McInnes Cooper,” said Ms. Seto, who played an integral role in bringing FACL representation to Atlantic Canada. Ms. Seto worked in collaboration with students at Dalhousie’s Asian Law Student’s Society, by acting as liaison with other FACL Boards.
Ms. Seto says she and the Atlantic Chapter of FACL are excited to start working with all levels and members of the legal community, from students to the judiciary to firmly establish that diversity is a priority in the Atlantic legal community.
Megan’s initiative is reflective of the opportunities that McInnes Cooper’s Diversity and Inclusion program supports and encourages.
Congratulations to Megan on the success of this initiative!
