Attendance at this webinar will provide you with 2 hours of the ethics, professional responsibility and practice management component for your Law Society of BC reporting.


Think critically about ethical dilemmas that challenge your professional responsibility. In this webinar, we examine emerging ethical problems that could impact your practice and consider decision-making criteria to fulfill the obligations you have to your clients, the courts, our profession and the public.

Join us as we discuss practical ethics scenarios in a relatable way. Chelsea Wilson and Clare Jennings involve audience members in the discussion of real-life ethical dilemmas, case studies and the Code of Conduct. New scenarios involve situations in the COVID-19 pandemic, trust accounting rules and cryptocurrency, among others.
