Articling Review Survey

Are you a current articling student, new lawyer, principal, firm recruiter or mentor of articling students?


Together with the Law Societies in Alberta and Saskatchewan, the Law Society of Manitoba is launching two surveys: one directed at articling students and new lawyers (articled in the last five years); the other directed at principals, recruiters and mentors. The surveys are designed to help the law societies better understand the experiences and supports that articling students are getting during their articling term in order to critically assess whether our existing systems are appropriately preparing lawyers for the future.


The surveys take approximately 15 minutes to complete and all responses will be analyzed in aggregate form only. Nothing shared by you will be linked to you in any way. As an incentive, you will have the option of submitting your name at the end of the survey for a chance to win a complimentary registration to any Law Society of Manitoba CPD of your choice (prize must be redeemed within the next year).

Surveys:

The surveys will remain open until June 17, 2019.

New Rights, New Obligations: An Introduction to The Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act

This self-paced e-Course is available on demand and is designed to provide you with substantive information about the Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act (FHRMIRA), as well as practical information you will need to know when making applications under FHMRIRA.

Did you know that under FHRMIRA each First Nation (other than those excluded) may be able to enact its own laws to address matrimonial property interests or rights on reserve land, but that unless and until they do so, provisional rules under FHRMIRA apply?

Under the provisional rules spouses and common law partners may have rights to property on reserves in cases of relationship breakdown or death.

Topics covered include:

  • Understanding the Background
  • Understanding the Foundation of FHRMIRA
  • Manitoba’s Approach to the Protection Order and Exclusive Occupation Order Provisions
  • Matrimonial Property Interests or Rights
  • Estates
  • Penalties and Enforcement

This program may be reported for a maximum of 1.5 hours of CPD activity for Manitoba Members.
