Sonu Dhanju-Dhillon to speak at The Advocates’ Society 2021 Diversity & Inclusion Lunch


Sonu Dhanju-Dhillon will be speaking at The Advocates’ Society 2021 Diversity & Inclusion Lunch event called, "Cultural Competence and Client Service for Litigators" on May 28, 2021. The event will be hosted by the Commercial Litigation Practice Group.

Misunderstandings arising from cultural differences can have disastrous consequences in litigation. Racialized clients may encounter barriers in communicating the full context of their dispute to counsel from a different background, and may fear that the manner in which they conduct business or communicate will be misinterpreted by a judge from another community. These and other scenarios underscore the pressing need for effective advocates to be informed about any cultural differences that could impact their clients’ interests in a dispute.

Join the Commercial Litigation Practice Group for the 2021 Diversity & Inclusion Lunch, which will focus on cultural competence and client service for litigators. Our panelists will discuss how litigators can educate themselves and the judiciary about the effect of cultural differences on how clients structure their business affairs, clients’ demeanour and communication style, assessing credibility, and more.
