Laura Pearce to Deliver Opening Presentation at OTLA’s Spring Conference
Posted on behalf of Greg Monforton & Partners Injury Lawyers on May 23, 2013 in General Interest
The Ontario Trial Lawyers Association is holding their Spring Conference in Toronto on Thursday, May 30, where our own Laura Pearce will deliver the opening presentation, "Housekeeping Claims since McIntyre: Has the Landscape Changed?"
Ms. Pearce's speech will be based on her paper analyzing the six cases that have cited the McIntyre? decision made in May 2009. The paper, available in PDF here, details the damages that can be suffered when an individual loses the ability to perform housekeeping, and how the decision in McIntyre established the groundwork to analyze such a loss.
Interested Ontario law students, clerks and legal professionals can register for the conference online. Registration fees range from $55 - $900 to attend both days.
The conference will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in the South Building, Level 700. The convention centre is located at 222 Bremner Blvd. in Toronto, M5V 3L9.
