How is articling in criminal law different than what my friends are doing?  What can I expect when I walk into a courtroom as an articling student?  What does the judge expect from me as an articling student?  Who can I talk to when I need help?

The MBA Criminal Justice Section is pleased to answer questions about articling in criminal law by hosting their twelfth annual seminar which is designed for articling students who will appear in Provincial Court on criminal matters.

This seminar will explain the practical side of criminal law and will focus on your role as an articling student in this area.  You will be provided with information that will assist articling students who handle criminal law cases.

First, a panel discussion that will include an introduction to the landscape of articling in the criminal courts, courtroom navigation and practical tips for success.

The session will end with a “meet and greet” that will be attended by Provincial Court Judges, Crown Attorneys and Defence Counsel.

This CPD is specifically designed for Principals, their articling students and summer students.  If Principals cannot attend, we ask that they send another lawyer from their firm that works directly with the students.

You do not want to miss this incredible opportunity to meet members of the Judiciary, the Criminal Bar and your fellow articling students while learning a few key pointers to help make your articling year more enjoyable and less stressful.

Please RSVP to the Manitoba Bar Association online  Non-Members can email to register. The link to join the Zoom meeting will be sent to online attendees at 9:30am on June 14, 2023.

Attendance at this MBA Section meeting can be applied towards your Law Society of Manitoba’s Continuing Professional Development requirement for a maximum of 1.5 hours.

The event is finished.

The library will be closed on Monday, May 20th for Victoria Day
