Attention lawyer licensing candidates: don’t miss this opportunity to get the insights you need to bridge the gap between law school and the practice of law! In a convenient and easy to access format, this eight-part series is designed to meet the current needs of new students-at-law (including articling students, Integrated Practice Curriculum students, and Law Practice Program/Programme de pratique du droit candidates) as you move towards your call to the bar.

Master the skills that you did not learn in law school, including networking skills, advice to help you thrive in your practice by understanding the office culture, best practices for docketing and billing, and maximizing your time at the firm. Hear strategies for effective and efficient legal writing and due diligence, as well as practical advice for maintaining wellness and developing resilience. In addition, gather the tools to get you ready for what comes next, as you sharpen your interview skills and gain insights on how to open your own law practice.

Our expert faculty will give you a broad range of perspectives. Engage in a live chat session with our program chairs and other session attendees during each module’s live release or watch the module later at your convenience. Register now to gain valuable insight and make connections with your peers along your pathway to licensing!
