What is 10+?
For the purpose of carrying out its mandate, the definition of midcareer advocates is not rigidly defined, but generally considered to be comprised of advocates who have been in practice for about10 to 18 years.

10+ fosters networking and engagement among mid-career members to build and engage members during this phase of their careers and seeks to develop opportunities for the participation of mid-career members in the Society. 10+ members sit on various TAS Standing Committees.

10+ also promotes access to justice initiatives, pro bono initiatives, leadership, and career and business development programs for mid-career advocates.

10+ Initiatives include:
  • Mid-Career Forum
  • Pitch Perfect
  • The Inside Story
  • Breakfast Near Tiffany's
  • Breakfast with Tiffany's
  • Mid-Career Women’s Social
  • Transitions Panel
  • Lessons in Leadership
  • Mentoring Dinner Series (jointly with YASC)
  • TAS Podcast (jointly with YASC)
  • Mid-Career Upscale Social
  • Advocacy Matters newsletter

The Committee is led by an Executive Committee that consists of a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Communications Liaison. Committee membership reflects the diversity of the Society’s membership, including, without limitation, representation from different practice areas of law and from across Canada.

Committee membership is limited to Society members who are mid-career advocates.
