WeirFoulds LLP is pleased to congratulate our Partner Raj Anand on his re-election to a third and final term as a Bencher of the Law Society of Upper Canada.

Ontario lawyers elect 40 benchers in elections that are held every four years. The Law Society of Upper Canada is governed by these benchers, who determine policies and other matters related to the governance of Ontario's lawyers and paralegals, including adjudicating discipline cases concerning lawyer and paralegal conduct, licensing, competence and capacity.

Raj is a senior civil litigation, administrative and human rights lawyer. He is a former Chief Commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission and currently acts for complainants and respondents in internal investigations and Ontario and federal applications. Raj has received a host of awards and professional recognitions during the course of his distinguished career including, in 2013, the inaugural Roy McMurtry Fellowship at Osgoode Hall Law School to teach ethics and professionalism.

We congratulate Raj on his re-election and look forward to his continuing to serve the public and the profession as a Bencher.
