A reunion in Ottawa

POSTED IN: My DTL blog: Chris' blog

As I write this, I'm in Ottawa for a reunion of former law clerks at the Supreme Court of Canada.  My life has taken a very different path from my clerk-colleagues, and I haven't really kept in touch with them.  We see one another at reunions, but it's been ten years since the last reunion.  But there's something about having gone through that intense year together -- talking now after all those years, it's as though no time has passed.  

I also had the chance to see "my judge", Frank Iacobucci, and his wife Nancy.  They hosted a luncheon today for all of Frank's former clerks, and their families, including children (the "grand-clerks").  

As the one person who's not working in a law or law-related field, I've found myself talking with folks about things other than law, about the things that they're passionate about, whether that's heirloom tomatoes or competitive kayaking.  I've talked to more than a few folks about Dream to Learn, and it's been a great validation that the idea is one that resonates with people.
