Currently on maternity leave from a small firm with no may leave benefits. Would love to become legal aid duty counsel to get better with life balance and mat leave benefits for kid #2. But I hear it's next to impossible to get a full time position except by starting on contract. Anyone in Toronto have any insight about becoming a family law duty counsel?

Too quiet in this bowl. Just like everything else in Canada! Come on, lawyers!


I’m a senior lawyer in the financial regulatory space in the US. Dual US and Canadian citizenship, though my whole career has been in the US. Admitted to NY bar. Interested in working in Toronto.

Any law firm salary reductions in Canada yet?

Received an offer from the DOJ for a 2 year contract, doing work which seems more interesting/engaging than what I’m doing right now (insurance defence) - but for just over 9% less than I’m currently making, and the partner track has been outlined for me at my firm..feel like it’s not worth trading higher long term earning potential for contract + pay cut just because the work is more engaging..but on the other hand, ID is starting to bore me..thoughts/refs to anyone at DOJ would be appreciated

To the post below- it is quiet, so I’ll bite!
