Leadership Lawyers - Tom Ullyett and Jordan Brown

Episode Summary

Lawyers in leadership positions. Julia welcomes Tom Ullyett and Jordan Brown.

Episode Notes

The CBA as a pathway to a career in politics? Absolutely. With applications to join a CBA national section executive closing at the end of this month, Julia welcomes two long-time CBA-ers, Jordan Brown and Tom Ullyett, who have pursued careers in politics. Tom served as Deputy Minister in the Yukon to six ministers from two political parties over the course of thirty years. Jordan held political office in his home province of Prince Edward Island from 2015 to 2019, serving as Minister of Education, Minister of Justice and Attorney General. They discuss their involvement with the CBA over the years, the not always obvious duties of government lawyers, and how a professional legal education shouldn’t limit you to the practice of law.
