JP Boyd on Family Law Webinar Series is back, with an extra session added!

So much has changed since we launched our 2020 JP Boyd Family Law Webinar series in January; it feels like we live in a different world, and in a way we do. The ways in which this state of emergency is impacting public libraries and library staff is a moving target. In the meantime, we’ve decided to carry on as planned with the series.

jp_boyd_portraitThe next session is Part 4: JP Boyd on Enforcing Family Law Orders: Legal Reference basics, tips & tricks | Wednesday, May 6th at 9:00 am (PST). We’ll be following the same Q & A format as in previous sessions, and incorporating COVID-19 information as it relates to the topic. The topics for the remaining sessions on May 20th and June 3rd will be announced on May 6th and posted here on the blog afterward.

We have also added a bonus session: How Covid-19 is Impacting Family Law Matters overall, Wednesday May 13th at 9:00 am (PST). John-Paul will give an overview of what is happening, and as before, demonstrate how to use the wikibook in practice. He will be joined by Courthouse Librarians who have been working on the COVID-19 Resources for British Columbians Wikibook, and who have been providing remote reference services since our libraries closed in mid-March.

All 1-hour long webinars are a combination of presentation by John-Paul, demonstration of using online wikibooks, and a Q & A period where you’ll have the opportunity to pose questions and watch him effectively navigate the resource. Front-line courthouse librarians will be hosting alongside John-Paul to share their own experiences, tips and tricks.

Please come with your questions in hand! John-Paul is as generous as he is knowledgeable about family law in BC. Below you’ll find registration links for each session:

If you were unable to attend our previous webinars in this series and want to learn more, we have made some recordings available through our Vimeo:  As soon as we are able, we’ll have the remainder of the sessions posted.

Hope to see you there, and hope you are all well!
