As COVID-19 events continue to unfold and have an impact on how law is practiced and cases are heard (remotely) in court, legal professionals need timely information on the new procedures. Join LexisNexis Canada as they host:


Speakers:
Honourable Chief Judge Margaret Wiebe of the Provincial Court
Honourable Chief Justice Glenn Joyal Court of the Queen’s Bench
