It gives me great pleasure to advise that the CEO hiring committee has recommended, and the Benchers have unanimously approved, the hiring of Leah Kosokowsky as the next CEO of the Law Society.
Since becoming a bencher in 2014, I have watched Leah develop and grow in her role as Director of Regulation and become a true leader in the organization. I was particularly impressed with how well regarded she is nationally through the Federation of Law Societies. The Law Society of Manitoba and its staff generally are seen as among the leaders within that organization and I know that reputation will continue under Leah’s guidance.
Please join me in congratulating Leah as the incoming CEO of the Law Society.
In 1999, Leah joined the discipline department of the Law Society until she was promoted to the Director of the Complaints Resolution Department in 2002. In 2015 Leah took on the role of Director of Regulation.
In 2021, a transfer of leadership will officially commence as Leah transitions into her new position as CEO of the Law Society.
