WeirFoulds LLP is pleased to announce that Partner Raj Anand is the recipient of the 2010 Distinguished Career Award from the South Asian Bar Association. The award was presented at the Association’s Annual Gala on November 17, 2010.
The South Asian Bar Association of Toronto is the GTA’s premier legal organization dedicated to promoting the objectives of South Asian members of the legal profession. The Association is dynamic, continually expanding and includes lawyers from large and small law firms, sole practitioners, government agencies and departments, non-profit organizations, and corporations. Members of the judiciary, academics and law students also form an integral part of the Association.
Raj Anand is a senior civil litigation, administrative and human rights lawyer and a bencher of the Law Society of Upper Canada. He is a former Chief Commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission, and more recently, was appointed by the Ontario government to set up the Human Rights Legal Support Centre as part of the Human Rights Code reforms. Raj was also the first recipient of the Advocates’ Society Award of Justice.
We congratulate Raj on this honour and for his continuing contributions to excellence within the legal community.
