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:
Honourable Chief Judge Margaret Wiebe of the Provincial Court
Honourable Chief Justice Glenn Joyal Court of the Queen’s Bench
Honourable Chief Justice Richard Chartier of the Court of Appeal
During this webinar we will discuss how their courts are continuing to adapt in light of restricted operations due to COVID-19. They will provide insight into questions such as their experiences in operating virtual courtrooms, the use of judicial discretionary powers to achieve just and fair results, plans for further adaptations, technological successes and challenges, and which processes, if any, the courts will continue to adopt in the post-pandemic world.
This Webinar has been postponed.

The Isaac Pitblado lectures are an annual series of lectures in honour of the life and work of Isaac Pitblado, an important figure in Manitoba’s legal profession.
Presented here are a selection of lectures ranging from the beginnings in 1960 up until the present day. It gives an idea of the wide range of topics covered in lectures; from estate planning and income tax law, through the changes of technology and legislation, up to current topics such as access to justice and the future of the legal profession.
The next Isaac Pitblado Lecture is taking place on November 8 at the Fort Garry Place Conference Centre, entitled “Capacity to Decide: Planning for Death and Dying”
