Caleigh Glawson, Brodsky Amy & Gould
Kathrine Basarab, Manitoba Justice – Prosecutions Service

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 these questions by hosting our twelfth annual seminar 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.

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

We will end the session 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 note – although masks are currently no longer required to be worn in the Law Courts, due to the size of room 413 and the potential number of attendees, the organizers recommend that masks are worn during the presentation.

Please RSVP to the Manitoba Bar Association online at  Non-Members can email to register.
