Bill C-46, known as the Impaired Driving Act, came into force on December 18, 2018.

Privilege issues permeate every lawyer's practice, whether transactional or litigation-focused. Knowing when privilege does and does not apply, understanding the scope and reach of the privilege, and the circumstances in which waiver applies, and implementing best practices for invoking and preserving the privilege require an awareness of recent cases and how real-world privilege scenarios play out. Lawyers unfamiliar with these evolving principles put their clients and themselves at risk. This program examines key areas in the law of privilege where there have been significant recent developments. Noted author and award winning law Professor Peter Sankoff will...Read More

Malpractice claims against wills and estates practitioners have steadily increased over the last decade, with inadequate fact investigation and lawyer/client communication failures being the top reasons complaints are made. Lawyers who draft estate planning documents are under more scrutiny than ever as the largest wealth transfer from one generation to the next begins. Mistakes can be found at every turn, from failure to have a working knowledge of tax, real estate, and family law, or misunderstanding a client’s unique, and often complex, family dynamics and asset ownership. Lawyers new to estates law and non-specialists who dabble in wills, trusts, and estates in addition to their regular practice must be particularly diligent to meet the standard of care. Among other things, drafting lawyers owe a duty of care not only to their clients, but third parties as well. Fortunately...Read More

CPD credits by province CPD credits by province

As lawyers we encounter conflicting perspectives of reality every day. It happens in estates, family, criminal, employment, business, and other areas of law. We see it when documenting relationships, during negotiations, and in litigation. Clients, parties, opposing counsel, and colleagues sometimes hold on to their positions and their versions of the facts - even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. In this advanced presentation, lawyer, professor and internationally acclaimed conflict resolution expert Nina Meierding will explore how people develop very different perspectives of what has happened, what is right, and what is fair. You’ll learn how we each create, reinforce and remember our own realities, and specific reasons why it is so difficult for people to acknowledge they have made a mistake even when all the “facts” are against them. Using examples from a variety of practice areas and legal settings...Read More

Will challenges are often based on claims that the testator lacked the capacity to execute a will, or that the will was the result of undue influence. These are not easy matters to assess, especially with new clients for whom you have no frame of reference. As a practitioner, you must assume that the will you are drafting could be contested, and take clear steps to rule out issues of incapacity and undue influence, and build a record documenting your conclusions. This exciting new webinar featuring experienced estates counsel Mark Weintraub, Q.C. will review your duties when taking will planning instructions, offer practical techniques you can use to evaluate capacity and undue influence, and discuss how to better help or decline to help a prospective client, while protecting your practice from claims of negligence. By the end of the program you will...Read More
