THE ADVOCATE 661
VOL. 79 PART 5 SEPTEMBER 2021
to busy lawyers’ inboxes will be lost in the abyss, likely dragged to
the trash folder without even being opened. The result would be a
great tragedy not only for the Advocate and its ‘superfans’ but for
the profession at large.” – Sandra L. Kovacs, Kazlaw Injury
We are immensely grateful to these (and other) readers who have leapt
to the assistance of the Advocate and have articulated in ways we could not
have imagined the import of our enterprise to the profession. Your support
and praise for the Advocate confirm that we are producing something of
immense worth to the profession.
For our cover subjects and others who have contributed and continue to
contribute to our #advocatesuperfan social media campaign, we marvel at
your diversity, creativity, humour and commitment to the Advocate and its
preservation. Thank you to you as well. It is vitally important to us that you
see your profession and yourselves within the pages of this magazine, so yet
again we encourage all readers to contribute to the Advocate. The importance
of what we do for you has never been clearer. If you are an #advocatesuperfan,
do let us know, and also let your benchers know.
