Droit-inc. quotes Montréal lawyer Louise Mailhot in an article about her professional career.
Ms. Louise Mailhot has been a member of the Barreau du Québec since 1966. Needless to say, that she has seen a lot in the last 50 years. The former judge of the Court of Appeal of Quebec and former vice president of the International Association of Judges is now strategic counsel to Fasken Martineau’s Litigation and Employment Law Practice Groups, where she is thrilled to see the number of female lawyers in the profession.
“There are a lot of us! At the beginning of my career, I was practically the only one practicing employment law and, especially, litigation, which led me to the courtroom. It’s quite something to find yourself in a crowd surrounded by only men.”
