Navigating Housing On Reserve

Monday June 10, 2019 from 12:30-1:30pm PDT

This 1 hour webinar will present a toolkit to assist you when working with clients who require assistance addressing housing on reserve matters. This session will examine relevant statutes (i.e. Indian Act, First Nations Land Management Act, etc.), propose some questions to ask your client, and where to find relevant policies.

This session will be co-presented by Patricia Barkaskas, Instructor at the Peter A Allard School of Law and Academic Director of the Indigenous Community Legal Clinic, and Jennifer Mackie, 3rd year law student at the Peter A Allard School of Law.

Participants in this webinar may claim up to 1 hour of CPD credit with the LSBC.

Archived Webinars

Archived webinars are organized by topic. If you plan to review a previously recorded course for CPD credit, it is your responsibility to ensure that your review of the course meets the Law Society of BC's criteria for Approved Education Activities.

Legal Research Course

This course, which is eligible for CPD credit, is a series of videos that demonstrate how to plan a research strategy and employ specific research skills.  In the videos we show you how to use popular legal research tools that are free (CanLII) or that you can use for free at the BC Courthouse Libraries. 

Take the course (including self-assessment quiz questions) on the Law Society Online Learning Centre.

Complete an Ethics Study Kit

Our study kits have been put together to assist you in completing your BC Lawyers’ Continuing Professional Development credits. These three kits count towards the CPD requirement for:

  • professional responsibility and ethics
  • client care and relations
  • practice management

We’ve gathered articles and, in some cases, a scenario for you to review that highlight potential areas of concern for lawyers in practice. We’ve then set out a list of potential questions relating to the material you’ve read.

They are designed to be done in groups of two or more - think of it like a book club for lawyers. We suggest that you meet for one to two hours to discuss.

You must be logged in to access these study kits.
