It can be very challenging for litigators to stay up-to-date on recent developments of the Rules of Court.
Revisit the must-know rules (including updates you might have missed), and discover practical tips for using the Rules to run effective litigation matters.
Faculty and Topics
In a recent interview, we spoke to program chair, Gavin Price (JSS Barristers) , who spoke to the diversity of the program faculty. Here’s what he had to say.
I think the diverse panel and their experience are all very appealing. I’ve either worked opposite of or closely with 4 out of the 5 panelists, and all of them are talented and on top of their game. Ellery Lew [Witten LLP] has an engineering background; he is methodical, diligent, and has a unique approach to law. Darren Reed [Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP] is one of the hardest working individuals I know – with a brain to match. Stacey Petriuk [JSS Barristers] is our managing partner and manages to tackle that and her practice with aplomb. Melanie Gaston [Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP] has been a force of nature, previously at Blake’s and now at Osler’s. She and I are from the same graduating class about 15 years ago. Chelsey Bailey [Field LLP] I’ve gotten to know a bit more through this process and she is wonderful to deal with. She is on top of things, engaged, and interested. I think we’ve got a really strong panel.”
Gavin also gave us an overview of the topics that will be covered at this program and explained why he thinks this program is beneficial.
It is hard to keep up on the changes that happen with the Rules, so there is a real benefit to having the opportunity to hear from someone who has taken the time to review a particular rule, break it down, and make it current. We’re going to run the gamete from classic Rules like 4.33 and get practical advice from experienced and talented litigators.”
