Stuff yourself with some tandoori chicken, butter chicken, and chicken tikka masala. Wash it down with a glass of mango lassi, and finish off with a delicious bowl of rice pudding. Enjoy all of this and more at the return of our popular FACL Lunch Series.
Please join us for a little bubbly and good cheer to toast the Holidays and the coming New Year!
Our featured guest will be the honourable Madam Justice Ritu Khullar of the Court of Appeal of Alberta. We are honoured and excited to have Madam Justice share her thoughts on the topic of equal representation of the Asian community on the bench.
