Why You Should Attend

Law, perceived as a business, is faced with a number of novel challenges.

In a fast-paced world, ethical conundrums have become more complex; in the drive to control costs and deliver value to clients, legal process outsourcing premised on a global talent pool has crept from conjecture to reality; in the midst of the pervasive use of technology, social media and cloud based practice management has developed and pose unique questions that can’t be ignored.

To remain competitive, today's practitioner requires a robust awareness of concerns beyond knowledge of the law itself. Those concerns engage the Rules of Professional conduct in new ways, in ways that cannot be ignored, and in ways that were firmly non-existent when those Rules were crafted.

Our program, Ethics, Professionalism and the Business of Law, premised on the perspectives of an august faculty of pace-setters, is about the application of the Rules to a vastly altered, and still evolving legal landscape.

The Program Brochure

6.25 Professionalism Hours
0.75 Substantive Hours
The law society credits excess professionalism hours towards the substantive hours requirement.

Important Notes:
1) An accurate payment card billing address is required, as a security feature, in the upcoming payment pages. In some instances, it may not be the same as your law firm address. An inaccurate address will result in declined payments until an accurate one is provided.

2) Payment per registrant is required, as proof for CPD audits by the Law Society of Upper Canada. In the event of an audit regarding the fulfillment of CPD requirements, only confirmed registrants can be indicated as having attended.

3) A key difference: Live Webcasts cannot be paused with an expectation of continuation at a later time, but Archived Webcasts can. Also, Archived Webcasts don’t include live answers to questions by presenters, but Live Webcasts do. As a courtesy, all Live Webcast registrants are granted access to the Archived Webcast once it is made available.

4) A Physical Attendance fee covers materials delivered in PDF format through our private web dissemination portal. In the interest of environmental stewardship, we do not provide printed materials other than printed program agendas or schedules. Attendees are welcome to bring along a laptop or tablet to aid in following live presentations.

5) 5 or more registrations qualify for 5% off per registrant.
