The Law Society’s Call to Action Committee is continuing its mandate of ensuring the Law Society of PEI responds to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Call to Action #27. The Call to Action Committee has engaged Professor Naiomi Metallic to present Lunch and Learn titled “Aboriginal Law Affects my Practice?! Yes, It’s more than hunting and fishing rights” The presentation will focus on the practical element of Aboriginal law and how it can affect the everyday practice of lawyers in this province.

Professor Metallic is from the Listuguj Mi’gmaq First Nation in Gespe’gewa’gi. She holds a BA (Dalhousie), an LLB (Dalhousie), an LLL (Ottawa) and an LLM (Osgoode). As of June 2016, she is full-time faculty at the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University and she holds the Chancellor’s Chair in Aboriginal Law and Policy.  As a legal scholar, she is most interested in writing about how the law can be harnessed to promote the well-being of Indigenous peoples in Canada and conveying this information in accessible ways.
