Earlier this month, APB appointed three new Directors to its Board. Morgan Camley, Dan Goodleaf and Sarah Nelligan are all active in the pro bono legal community and bring a variety of new perspectives and experiences to their new roles.
Here are their bios:
Morgan is a litigation lawyer at McCarthy Tétrault practicing general commercial litigation, Aboriginal law and criminal law. She sits on her firm’s national pro bono committee and she is actively involved in the Salvation Army Belkin House Pro Bono Clinic. In 2009, Morgan won the Salvation Army’s Volunteer Lawyer of the Year Award. Morgan also sits on the Board of Directors for QMUNITY– BC’s leading resource centre for the LGBT community, and she is the Co-Chair of the Mabel League Women’s Fastpitch League in Vancouver.
Dan has enjoyed a long and varied career in public service including as Canadian Ambassador, Federal Deputy Minister, Assistant Secretary to the Cabinet, and Canada’s Chief Federal Negotiator to the Treaty Process in BC. Over the past several years, he has volunteered as an APB Clinic Assistant. He was also recently appointed as a Discipline Hearing Panel Member by the Law Society of BC.
Sarah practices in the area of Insolvency and Restructuring as an associate of Lawson Lundell LLP. She routinely appears before all levels of court, assisting clients in a variety of insolvency matters and related proceedings. Committed to increasing access to justice, Sarah routinely volunteers at the Justice Access Centre and is a guest lecturer for the Family Services of Greater Vancouver’s Financial Literacy Program on the topic of Credit and Insolvency– a contribution for which she was recognized with a 2011 Lexpert Zenith Award for Corporate and Law Firm Social Responsibility.
