The Courthouse Libraries Training team has been very busy and in case you weren't able to view them live, new webinars have been added to the Courthouse Libraries webinar archive for you to view:

Court Changes after the COVID-19 Pandemic and Indigenous Cultural Relevancy

This is the 6th webinar in a series on Indigenous People and Law held in partnership with the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice. This session will go beyond the scope of the TRC’s vision to consider how the vulnerabilities of the justice system exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic will impact Indigenous people in Canada.

The webinar will address two issues: firstly, how, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Indigenous communities will be included in the gradual process of courts bringing their services online, and secondly, how can online court processes be adapted to remain culturally relevant for Indigenous Communities. The webinar will further cover the complications that the digitization of courts can bring regarding the use of culturally relevant Indigenous practices already in use by courts.

Participants may claim up to 1.5hrs of CPD with LSBC, including 1.5hrs of Practice Management credit.
