Brown Bag Series

The Brown Bag Series

The Advocates’ Society, together with Legal Aid Ontario, the Department of Justice and the Ministry of the Attorney General, are pleased to announce the 2009–2010 CLE luncheon series for government lawyers, legal aid clinic lawyers, lawyers working on legal aid certificates, and sole and small firm practitioners (5 or fewer lawyers). We provide the speaker and lunch; you supply the enthusiasm. Each presentation will feature demonstrations and discussions by experienced litigators on practical topics that will enhance your skills as an advocate.  Whether you are starting out or have been litigating for years, don’t miss this unique opportunity to get relevant, affordable advocacy training in a relaxed and collegial atmosphere. Target groups will receive priority.

Register early to avoid disappointment – this series always sells out. Get practical advocacy pointers from dynamic and experienced counsel in a relaxed setting. Join us on four dates in 2009/2010 for only $45.00 plus GST per program. You will not find relevant, affordable advocacy training like this anywhere else. Lunch and materials included.

All sessions take place from 12 noon to 1:15 pm at The Advocates’ Society Education Centre
