DOWNLOAD THE PROGRAM FLYER.
The Law Society of Prince Edward Island and the Barristers' Society of Nova Scotia have specific requirements for lawyers practicing in their provinces. In addition to set hours of substantive legal education, lawyers require hours annually in specialty topics such as Risk and Practice Management, Professionalism, Conflicts, Ethics, Rules of Practice, etc. APTLA is creating a plaintiff-oriented civil trial based program to bring to Members and colleagues. We are creating content that is relevant, useful and interesting legal education covering topics required by the Law Societies.
APTLA's SPECIALTY TOPICS IN MCPD will include:
• Cloud-Based Case Management & Real-Time Law Office Management Systems
• Ethical Challenges in Personal Injury Practice
• Professionalism & the Brain Injured Client
** This program represents TWO (2) HOURS of Risk and Practice Management and TWO (2) HOURS of Professionalism & Ethics MCPD Credits for NS and PEI Lawyers. The program is accredited by the Law Society of New Brunswick for FOUR (4) HOURS of MCPD CREDITS. **
