Ian Binnie's Advice to Young Lawyers - Forget it All

On April 28, 2016, Ian Binnie C.C., Q.C. spoke at the The 4th Annual Toronto Lawyers Association Bench and Bar Young Lawyers Soirée, addressing over 140 junior lawyers. The event was featured on Precedent Magazine's website.

"The advice I offer, having listened to a lot of advice over 50 years, is really that none of it is any good,” he said to a collective chuckle. “You’re far better off to throw away pre-conceptions. If you have a playbook as to how your career is going to develop, just forget about it because it’s not going to happen.”
