Associate Lawyer – Indigenous Law
Victoria, BC, CA – Remote Employment Possible
Mack Law Corporation is in the process of forming Lafond & Mack Law Group LLP (LMLG*), an Indigenous-owned and operated law group. Partners Leah Mack and Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond (Aki-Kwe), together with their fellow associates and staff, work to provide thoughtful, practical, and clear legal advice to First Nation communities, individuals, and organizations in British Columbia and across Canada. We are passionate about cultural safety and humility, and strongly believe in justice and fairness. Our varied skills and backgrounds have allowed us to form a close- knit group that works hard to deliver the best advice, options, and tools for our clients. We strive to use Canadian and Indigenous legal methods and approaches to promote long term change with practice shifts for better services, supports, and alignments of outcomes with First Nation rights and title.
Our primary office is located on unceded W̱ SÁNEĆ land, with a satellite office at Snuneymuxw First Nation. We acknowledge the W̱ JOȽEȽP First Nation and Snuneymuxw First Nation, both Douglas Treaty Nations.
Our firm is currently seeking a motivated Associate Lawyer to join us in providing advice to our clients engaging in governance and Indigenous law making, specifically in the areas of law and policy drafting, negotiating corporate-Indigenous agreements, governance capacity and transitions from Indian Act governance to self-determined governance (experience in child & family services would be advantageous but not necessary). Our work includes supporting First Nations with Treaties, as well as those with no agreements with the Crown.
This is an excellent opportunity to grow your practice while working with a team of experienced and friendly colleagues, while effecting positive change with First Nations communities and citizens.
Our firm recognizes diversity as a source of strength and celebrates inclusivity. We value every person as a unique individual, and we are committed to building a culture of equity and respect within our firm. We are honoured to receive applications from individuals of all genders, ages, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, sexual orientations, and life experiences. If you have a disability or special need that requires accommodation at any time during the process, please let us know. We provide health & dental benefits/RRSP matching to our employees and are open to considering remote employment for the right candidate.
If you think you are the right fit for this opportunity, please send your CV in confidence to:
Janna Kucharsky [email protected]
While we appreciate all applications received, only those candidates selected for an interview will be contacted. Note that a written component of the interview will be part of the application process if your application is screened for review.
*Please note that Mack Law Corporation is in the process of becoming Lafond & Mack Law Group LLP. As a result, our website details for the new firm will be updated shortly. In the interim, you can find out more about us at www.macklawcorp.ca. If you have any questions about this transition, please contact Leah Mack at [email protected]
