Carrie E. Ricker will serve as the second vice-president of the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society’s council for the 2018-2019 term.

She was acclaimed to the position after the closing of the nominations and will begin her duties after the society’s annual meeting on June 16.

Ricker is a sole practitioner from Halifax where she provides corporate, public sector and individual clients strategic direction, risk management and legal advice about health law, employment law, business law, privacy and confidentiality, and intellectual property law.

She has been a volunteer with the society’s legal services regulation solo and small firm working group.

“Carrie is very familiar with the society’s work in regulatory reform,” said current president Julia Cornish.

“Her legal practice has covered a broad range over the past 18 years and has greatly benefited the working group’s progress. Her experience with strategic direction, risk management and engagement will also be an asset as council advances legal services regulation.”

Already named to the 2018-2019 council were Frank E. DeMont of DeMont Law in New Glasgow, who will serve as president, and first vice-president, Halifax-based John Bodurtha of the Department of Justice Canada.
