Course Details:

In 2017, the British Columbia Law Institute (BCLI) published its ground-breaking, Study Paper On Financing Litigation. BCLI’S Study Paper explored 6 options for paying for legal services and funding litigation:

(1) unbundled legal services
(2) third-party litigation funding
(3) alternative fee arrangements
(4) crowdfunding
(5) legal expense insurance
(6) publicly funded litigation funds.

In this webinar, you will learn what these financing options are and how you can employ these options creatively and work with your clients to pay for their litigation. Take this webinar and be as creative as your client needs you to be. Rethink the future!
