Protest Law: Understanding the Law of Injunctions and Contempt of Court

Wednesday March 27th from 12:30-2pm

This 1.5 hour webinar is aimed at lawyers and non-lawyers who are looking to get a basic understanding of the law of injunctions and contempt of court proceedings. Our presenters are Leo McGrady, Q.C. and Murphy Fries of Koskie Glavin Gordon in Vancouver. Mr. McGrady and Ms. Fries have both written and presented on a variety of topics including human rights, labour law, and the law of protest. 

This is an introductory level workshop which will aim to provide an overview of how injunctions are used in the context of protests and the difference between civil and criminal contempt proceedings which can follow from the breach of an injunction. 

Participants in this webinar may claim up to 1.5 hours of CPD credit with the LSBC.
