Family Law – Okanagan Section Annual Conference 2019

Plan to attend the annual Family Law – Okanagan Section conference to kick off your 2019 LSBC reporting year with 10 hours of CPD from leading experts on topical issues that are current in the practice of family law. Join us for the renowned Family Law Year in Review. This conference is a must for all Family Law lawyers!

Past participants have commented that such conferences “connected me with local colleagues at the same time as receiving a state of the art update on recent case law, which can be challenging…. The facilities were excellent – food, service, accommodations and value. The materials and presenters were all top drawer and the interplay with the speakers and attendees was also excellent.”

Date: February / March (TBD), 2019  
Location: Predator Ridge Resort, Vernon


Immigration Law Annual Conference 2019

Calling on all Immigration lawyers! The Immigration Law Section will host its 2019 annual conference this year at the Terminal City Club. Join us for a day of networking and learning in-person or by webinar as this conference will be made widely available for all lawyers from different corners of Canada.

Speaking to the value of the conference, one participant commented that “the panels that dealt specifically with common areas of immigration practice (Express Entry, Global Talent Stream, Employer Compliance, etc.) were of most value and allowed for the sharing of best practices from other firms. Of particular value was the ability to hear from the people on the ‘other side,’ the representatives from IRCC.”

Date: March 15, 2019
Location: Terminal City Club, Vancouver
