PDF Registration Form | Agenda

Now in its 25th year the CBA Tax Law for Lawyers Conference was developed by senior tax law specialists to assist junior tax specialists and non-specialists in the practical applications of Canadian tax law.

Six days of sessions have been designed to allow conference participants an opportunity to learn from speakers in plenary and panel discussion formats. Registrants will also participate in small group workshops led by tax experts who will work through case studies and problems, highlighting significant issues and sharing their practical experience. These hands-on training sessions will provide the optimal learning experience for people interested in expanding their understanding of corporate and personal taxation, and estate planning concepts.

Participants at this program will receive invaluable electronic reference materials including papers, checklists, precedents and bibliographies.


Tax and estate lawyers in their first five years of practice, as well as general practitioners, corporate lawyers and in-house counsel seeking a background in tax law issues.


On-line registration is now closed. Please contact to be put on a short waitlist.

Please note your registration will not be processed until payment has been received.
