Ethics in Criminal Practice

Presented by Criminal Defense Advocacy Society and Courthouse Libraries BC, the focus of this webinar is on ethics in a criminal law practice.

Social Media in the Legal Profession: Content Development Strategies

One of the keys to social media success is creating consistent, valuable content. It's a challenge to know what to post, when to post, and how often. This session will focus on how to create an effective social media content strategy, and we'll get input from LSBC about what you can and cannot post online.

Effective Written Advocacy: A Guide to Writing Persuasive Factums

In this presentation, the Honourable Thomas Cromwell will share some practical tips and strategies for writing persuasive appeal factums.

This webinar is the second part of a series of training sessions on appellate practice skills for criminal law practitioners to be offered by Legal Aid BC, the BC Court of Appeal and Courthouse Libraries BC. While the intended audience is criminal practitioners, lawyers from all areas of practice will likely find some useful tips for improving their written arguments.
