The 11th Annual Young Women in Law Charity Gala
Please join YWL and The Heller Group for an evening of networking and fun in support of a worthy cause!
YWL is thrilled to announce that MARIE HENEIN will be the keynote speaker at this year's event.
Marie Henein is a senior partner at Henein Hutchison LLP, recognized in Canadian Lawyer as one of the country's Top Ten Litigation Boutiques. She has been interviewed on CBC's The National, written for the Globe and Mail, and is a sought after speaker. Named Toronto's 15th Most Powerful Person by Toronto Life, she has been repeatedly recognized as one of the Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers by Canadian Lawyer and was a recipient of the Laura Legge Award from the Law Society of Upper Canada and the Law Society of Upper Canada Medal. Recently, she wrote a memoir entitled 'Nothing But The Truth,' which has already become a national bestseller.

PIAP provides free and high-quality legal assistance to unrepresented appellants with conviction and sentence appeals before the Court of Appeal for Ontario. Collectively, PIAP’s lawyers have argued thousands of appeals in the Court of Appeal for Ontario and other appellate courts, including hundreds of appearances in the Supreme Court of Canada.
