Colloquium is a Continuing Professional Development event for lawyers in northeastern Ontario organized by a committee of legal professionals. For the Colloquium’s tenth anniversary, it has to be presented online, and MEA Forensic is proud to continue our ongoing support of this event, held on October 22-23, 2020.
Lawyers from all over the northeastern part of the province are invited to two days of professional development. The program is diverse, covering topics such as civil litigation, child protection, criminal law, indigenous legal issues, family law, and practice management. A special mentoring session for young lawyers is planned for the afternoon. Evidence, one of our favorite topics at MEA, will also be discussed in a session chaired by Scott Croteau, of Weaver Simmons LLP.
The Colloquium 2020 steering committee is made up of lawyers from Northeastern Ontario that understand the needs and value of quality programming for the north. More information about Colloquium and materials related to previous editions can be found on their website. The organizers advise attendees to be ready to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the event with proper pomp next year, in person.
