Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII) seeks applicants for the position of President. The agent for the search is Odgers Berndtson. Here is the relevant portion of the position announcement:
“…CanLII is the country’s foremost provider of free-access legal information. A non-profit created in 2001 by the Federation of Law Societies of Canada, its database boasts over a million legal documents, including superior court decisions and jurisdictional legislation. But the real work is just beginning and CanLII is in need of a leader to spearhead its growth. And that’s where you come in.
“In the pivotal role of President, you will develop the roadmap this organization will use to drive the ‘Free Access to Law Movement’ to new heights via the Internet platform. Part strategist, part tactician, you will deliver an innovative change management plan designed to fill the void in public access to Canadian legal information. Your ability to foster productive, trusting Board and stakeholder relationships will be a vital part of the big picture.
“Oversight of CanLII’s operation requires a bilingual, Internet-savvy, entrepreneurial executive at the helm. Broad-based legal knowledge and legal industry credibility is essential, as is your expertise in consulting, communication, and translating technical solutions into compelling opportunities. This is all underwritten by your genuine affinity for the ‘Free Access to Law Movement,’ for which you will travel domestically and internationally to advocate.
