Special Thanks to our Guest Contributor, Loraine Champion
Loraine Chapman, Executive Director of AB Lawyers' Assist
Loraine Champion has been a lawyer in Alberta since 1987. She practiced corporate law with a national firm, worked as senior corporate counsel at a multinational corporation (both as part of a job-share and on a part-time basis as part of her work-life balance values), and operated a small consulting practice focusing on corporate human resources law. Desiring a change after 25 years, she joined the Law Society of Alberta’s staff becoming the Manager, Early Interventions Programs, and then taking the helm of Assist in 2018. She has been a supporter of employee and lawyer mental health, as well as work-life balance through her career, and she has also worked with numerous not-for-profit organizations. Loraine can often be found at barre classes, reading, serving on the editorial committee of Law Matters, and spending time with her adult children, beloved dog, and friends.
