The Comeback Kids

We are excited to bring back some of our most popular events. These activities offer invaluable learning opportunities and fun chances to connect. Here’s a peek at what’s in store:

Launch Events & Section Dinners

Get inspired by the people you work with at our fall launch events for the Women Lawyers Forum and Immigration Law Section. Attend these events to reconnect with new and familiar colleagues over good food, timely topics and conversation.

The Aboriginal Lawyers Forum Holiday Banquet, Maritime Law Dinner, and the “For the Love of Litigation” Dinner are more highlights on the calendar to connect with industry leaders and expand your network.

Monthly Meetings

Some Sections host monthly meetings, whether it be an informal roundtable, a speaker presentation, or an after-work drop-in. Want to take advantage of this opportunity? Sections like Immigration Law, Maritime Law, Women Lawyers and Young Lawyers have exciting sessions coming up.

Annual CPD

Labour Law plans to bring back their Annual Bear Pit. Enjoy a lively and informative session with featured speakers from the Labour Relations Board. Explore the latest issues, hear from the experts, and get your questions answered.

Register early for our sell-out Master Shadowing programs hosted for the Vancouver Island, Okanagan and Lower Mainland regions. Early career lawyers enjoy a pre-Chambers dinner with a Master, a full day of Chambers shadowing, followed by an informative debrief session.

Section-led Conferences are another annual highlight for members. Gain your CPD credits from subject-matter experts at our Privacy, Immigration, Family, and Wills & Estates conferences.
