Law Society of Upper Canada Honouring Rodney Hull Q.C.
On April 26, 2007, The Law Society of Upper Canada will be honouring and presenting our own Rodney Hull with the Law Society Medal.
The Law Society Medal was struck in 1985 as an honour to be awarded by the Law Society of Upper Canada, the governing body of the lawyers of Ontario, to members who have made significant contributions to the profession.
The tribute is given for outstanding service within the profession whether in the area of practice or in the academic sphere or in some other professional capacity where the service is in accordance with the highest ideals of the legal profession, whether by devotion to professional duties over a long term or for a single outstanding act of service.
This honour is yet further recognition of Rodney’s distinguished career, which has included service to his profession on so many fronts.
He has been a lecturer at the Ontario Bar Admission Course and at Law Society of Upper Canada, Canadian Bar Association and Canadian Tax Foundation programs. He has also made extensive contributions to academic and professional journals in Canada. He is also the author of two standard reference texts.
Rodney was called to the Bar in 1957 and appointed a Q.C. in 1969. Aside from being a certified specialist in Civil Litigation, he is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel and an Academician, The International Academy of Estates and Trust Law.
Rodney was also awarded the Ontario Bar Association Award of Excellence for Estates and Trusts in 2005.
Congratulations Rodney, the firm is very proud of you and your many outstanding accomplishments.
