Ask a Young Lawyer Anything

Registration is open to members of the Manitoba Bar Association. If you are interested in becoming a member, please email

Grab your take-out and beverage of choice and join us for an informal “happy hour” conversation.

Come and chat with lawyers called to the Bar within the last 5 years. Our speakers have generously agreed to be in the hot seat as they are “asked anything” about their experiences as young lawyers. These include lawyers who practice at small/mid and large sized firms and in a variety of practice areas.

This is your chance to ask all of your burning questions about practicing out in the real world! You won’t want to miss this opportunity!

Registration in advance is required. We would appreciate if you could forward questions in advance of the session to Megan Spencer at  Please RSVP to the Manitoba Bar Association online at**Students may email to register**.

You will need a computer or laptop (PC or Mac), smartphone or tablet with a microphone and webcam (built-in or external) and an internet connection.

If you will be participating from a laptop, you would also need to install a Zoom Client for Meetings from this site: If you are unsure whether you have the latest version of Zoom, please follow the instructions HERE.

If you are planning to participate from smartphone or tablet you would need to install an App from the Apple Store or Google Play.   if you are installing the app from the Apple Store or Google Play to use on an iPad, iPhone or Android device or tablet the free app is called “Zoom Cloud Meetings”.

We would recommend that you have either the Zoom Cloud Meetings App or the Zoom Client for Meetings downloaded at least 15 minutes before the meeting.

When you do join, please allow your device to join with audio.  This feature can be found under Join Options in an Apple or Android device or Join with Computer Audio if you are participating on a laptop.

All participants should ensure they have set up their Zoom information to display your actual name (not just your device name) so that everyone knows who is on the call and anyone not invited to attend will be more easily identified, this also helps us properly track attendance at PD sessions.
