As society struggles to reduce the spread of COVID-19, working from home has become the new normal for lawyers, paralegals, and other legal staff. And it only takes about a week to realize that working from home occasionally is not the same as continuing our practices from home now. Why? Because the framework, structure, and people in our offices were still in place when we used to work from home occasionally - only we were missing. Working from home under today’s extraordinary and extraordinarily stressful circumstances is fundamentally different. Figuring out the most important things to do as we reinvent our lives and our legal practices - and actually getting the most important things done to the best of our ability in these circumstances - is more essential than ever.

Alcohol opens the door to a wide range of legal liability issues. From bars whose primary business is serving alcohol to private clubs and event venues that obtain special occasion alcohol permits, high exposure for liquor liability is the cost of commercial enterprise.

What circumstances increase or reduce liability? This program is designed to educate lawyers about the fundamentals of liquor liability law in Canada.
