The Overholt Law Commitment

At Overholt Law, we believe in our team, in the work we do, and in having a positive impact on both the legal profession and our local communities. We take pride in the countless hours spent by members of our team volunteering with social causes and sporting organizations personal to them, presenting to different organizations on developments in the law, and spending time planning social and professional development events for various non-profit organizations. We have a deep connection with the Canadian Bar Association in particular, and Carman J. Overholt, Q.C. is a Past President of the British Columbia Branch of the CBA.

Any member of our team would be pleased to discuss with you the ways in which they are giving back to the legal profession and their communities. In addition to these individual commitments, Overholt Law also generously supports three particular entities:

  • The Human Resources Management Association (HRMA);
  • The Mel Jr. & Marty Zajac Foundation; and
  • The Queen's University Centre for Law in the Contemporary Workplace.

HRMA

The Human Resources Management Association (HRMA) is your source for Human Resources information and services in BC and the Yukon. HRMA, committed to providing leadership in HR excellence, is the foremost professional association for those involved in the business of people. More about HRMA can be found at http://www.hrma.ca/.

The Mel Jr. & Marty Zajac Foundation

Established in 1987, the Mel Jr. & Marty Zajac Foundation was founded with a mandate to support children, seniors and those with special needs through innovative community projects focused on developing lifelong skills and independence and improving the quality of life for individuals across BC.

The Queen's University Centre for Law in the Contemporary Workplace

In November 2010, Queen's University Faculty of Law launched the Centre for Law in the Contemporary Workplace (CLCW). The first of its kind in Canada, the Centre will provide an intellectual home for the Canadian labour and employment law community. More about the Queen's University Centre for Law in the Contemporary Workplace can be found at http://www.queensu.ca/clcw/home.

Our commitments outside the office enable us to utilize our talents in ways that better our local communities and inform our everyday work. We believe our community involvement is not only enjoyable, but makes us better at our day jobs too.
