Prix Exemplum Iustitiae from the Young Bar Association of Laval awarded to Me Guillaume Bourbeau

7 December 2023

Our colleague Me Guillaume Bourbeau stood out this Wednesday at the annual Christmas cocktail of the Young Bar Association of Laval. Me Bourbeau was awarded the Exemplum Iustitiae prize, which recognizes the excellence of a Laval lawyer with less than 10 years’ practice.

Me Martin D. Charest, President of the Laval Bar, Me Guillaume Bourbeau, Me Alain Longval, Director of the Laval Bar and lawyer with Dunton Rainville, and Me Gabrielle Anquetil, President of the Young Bar Association of Laval.

The recipient of the Exemplum Iustitiae award is a lawyer who has contributed to the advancement of law, jurisprudence or the legal profession through a publication (journal article or doctrine), training or judicial decision. The recipient is a role model for his or her peers (exemplum) and actively participates in the development of justice (iustitiae).

In the nomination submitted to the AJBL by Alain Longval, a lawyer with Dunton Rainville and director of the Laval Bar, and Marc Charland, also a lawyer with the firm and outgoing president of the Bar, we highlight Me Bourbeau’s major role in a term paper by law students at the Université de Sherbrooke aimed at combating programmed obsolescence, which became the basis of a bill tabled by the Québec government. Now a lawyer in Dunton Rainville’s Laval office and a lecturer at ETS, Mr. Bourbeau’s unrivalled legal skills and human qualities make him a much-appreciated colleague.

Congratulations to Guillaume Bourbeau on this recognition from his peers, and on what promises to be a remarkable career!
