932 THE ADVOCATE
VOL. 79 PART 6 NOVEMBER 2021
accurately, Ruby and Lola live in a classic 1927-built home and let rooms to
Julie and Dan in exchange for treats, walks and tons of affection.
Of her life as a lawyer, people who know her best say that Julie was a
team player, always willing to pitch in or help out as needed. She picked up
files and trials effortlessly. She had an incredible work ethic and expected
no less of the lawyers she worked with. However, she also expected those
lawyers to take a breath when time and circumstances allowed. She was a
go-to resource for clients, lawyers and students. She took the mentorship
and promotion of younger lawyers, especially but not exclusively women
lawyers, very seriously, including in her formal mentorship role with the
Women’s Law Forum.
Julie was appointed as a judge of the Supreme Court of British Columbia
on April 27, 2021. Parties and counsel can expect Justice Lamb to be
informed, prepared, unassuming and a careful listener who will ask questions
sparingly but always in critical areas. She will be careful to ensure that
everyone is heard, and will also understand and take seriously the responsibilities
that come with running a courtroom. She will be keenly aware that
the parties anxiously await her decision. British Columbians will be well
served by the long judicial career that lies ahead for Justice Lamb.
