Changes to court procedures for Child Protection, the implication for your own northern practice, and information on resources your clients can access are the main topics in the morning program.

But don’t miss the presentation of Karen Sawatzky, Director of Legal Resources, Manitoba Law Library, because she will end the morning discussing the world of legal research in the 21st century. She will be addressing the question, "how do I effectively navigate the world of legal research to get me the information I need?"

Part 2: Afternoon Session (1:00 pm - 4:30 pm)

The afternoon is entirely devoted to practical matters of interest to all lawyers. 

After lunch, Karen Sawatzky will continue on legal research and give you a live introduction to databases behind the Member’s Portal: Rangefindr (criminal sentencing database), desLibris (Irwin Law’s “Essentials of Canadian Law” series), and HeinOnline (legal journals and statutes). 

Barney Christianson, Q.C., the Practice Advisor from the Law Society will bookend the afternoon break with a two part presentation he calls “A 12 Steps Program For Professional Bliss, Rainbows, and Unicorns.”

The day ends with an open discussion about your experiences practicing law called “Practicing law in the North: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly & what can be done to make it The Good, The Better & The Not as Bad as it Was.“
