Daniel Naymark Featured in Canadian Lawyer Magazine

Canadian Lawyer Magazine quotes Daniel Naymark in its article, B.C. woman with criminal past can proceed with law career. Daniel offered the following comment on a decision of the British Columbia Law Society Tribunal to admit to the bar a woman who acknowledged a past addiction to crystal meth and related criminal activity:

[This is a] bold and welcome decision. It would have been safe for the panel to reject this candidate and so shield itself from future criticism should she engage in bad conduct as a lawyer. Instead . . . the panel gave a deserving person a chance at earned redemption. Perhaps more importantly, the panel recognized that the public benefits from a legal profession that reflects a diversity of life experiences.
