TOPIC: Building and Maintaining a Precedents Collection
SPEAKER: John Gillies, Vice President, Content, KMStandards

Precedent documents are crucial in enabling lawyers to practise effectively and efficiently. Legal precedents expert John Gillies will provide guidance on how you can first build and then maintain a precedents collection. This webinar will be useful to both those who want to improve an existing collection and those wishing to create one. The focus will be on building taxonomies of legal research documents but will also cover transactional precedents. John will draw on his long experience both at large law firms and in the law department of one of the big banks to provide useful tips to practitioners and researchers. Ample time will be provided for questions from participants.

You will need a telephone and computer to participate.  Please RSVP (PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED) on-line (link above). You will receive log-in information after you have registered, approximately one week before the session. Space is limited for the webinar, so register early.  

Attendance at this MBA Section meeting can be applied towards your Law Society of Manitoba's Continuing Professional Development requirement for Ethics, Professionalism and Practice Management (EPPM) for a maximum of 1.5 hours.
