Celebrating Rhys A. Volkenant’s Call Ceremony
Posted on September 13, 2019
RBS colleagues show their support today for Rhys as he formally joins the legal community by taking his Barristers and Solicitors Oath in front of Benchers; a volunteer board of governors for the Law Society. Marking the 161st ceremony held at the Vancouver Law Courts, the President of the Law Society of BC, Nancy Merrill, Q.C., addressed the 210 newest lawyers, touching on the importance of preserving and protecting the rights and freedoms of all people through their duty to serve the broader community. She also reminded them that they are people first and lawyers second, and Rhys exemplifies this wonderfully through his natural ability to connect with the clients he serves, and the teams he collaborates with.
Congratulations from all of your contemporaries at Richards Buell Sutton!
