Here at LESA, we are always looking to build partnerships and find better ways to help you access the continuing legal education you need. One way for us to do this is to share the news about professional development programs offered by other high-caliber providers – like our counterparts at CLEBC. In collaboration with LESA, CLEBC is hosting the Western Canada Class Actions Conference on February 26, and members of the Alberta legal community are welcome to attend.
Explore the implications of the latest case law on critical and topical issues:
- What now constitutes a class?
- What is the impact of maintaining confidentiality in Privacy Class Actions?
- How do you sue for statutory breach?
- What are the ethics and professionalism issues you need to be aware of?
- How are developments in privacy and drug copyright shaping class action litigation?
- What are the challenges surrounding settlement implementation?
There are several exciting Alberta connections to this program. Two incredible LESA supporters and important members of the legal community are presenting at the Western Canada Class Actions Conference:
- The Honourable Associate Chief Justice J.D. Rooke is offering the View from the Bench, where you’ll hear the judiciary’s perspective on the current state of class actions.
- Carsten Jensen QC is sharing his extensive experience with civil litigation in class actions as one of the course presenters.
