The Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association is hosting its bi-annual seminar in Calgary on March 10, and in Edmonton on March 12, 2020. Weapons in Chambers will provide insights on recent case law and tips & tricks to help trial lawyers better prepare for their next chambers application. Our senior biomechanical engineer Dennis Chimich will be attending both seminars along with Marcia Araujo, so come by our table and bring your injury questions along. And while you’re there, ask them how you can bring a free MEA continuing legal education seminar to your firm.
This is a practice-oriented seminar for people looking to sharpen their advocacy skills and gain the tools necessary to manage the myriad of issues that can come up in chambers matters. It covers various topics including an update on costs in law and practice, with Mikkel Arnston and Anthony Purgas of Reynolds Mirth Richards & Farmers LLP, and the do’s and don’ts of Chambers with Master Andrew Robertson QC and Master Brian Summers of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta. You will find the complete agenda on ACTLA’s website.
The seminar is held at the Fairmont Pallister Hotel in Calgary on March 10, and at the Chateau Lacombe Hotel in Edmonton on March 12.
