Submissions From Junior Counsel At The Court Of King's Bench

Sep 23, 2022

Opportunities to address the Courts are essential to the development of junior counsel in Alberta.

The Court of King’s Bench welcomes the opportunity to hear from newer counsel, who often play a significant role in the drafting of written submissions and have in-depth knowledge of the case before the Court. Our Courts have an important role to play in fostering an environment that welcomes hearing from all members of the Bar. While the decision as to who speaks on behalf of the client in a particular case belongs to counsel and their clients, the Court of King’s Bench encourages the practice of senior counsel sharing a portion of oral argument with more junior counsel.
