BCPA Professional Development Course "An Overview of Class Action Litigation”

29 Jan 2019
12:00pm - 1:00pm PST

“An Overview of Class Action Litigation”

Professional development is an area that must be pursued by every Paralegal in our Province.  All BCPA professional development courses contain a substantive component.  Whether we work in a specialized area or a general area, it is important that we continue learning and enhancing our knowledge in all areas of law. 

One of the BCPA's purpose is to promote legal education for the benefit of Paralegals in our Province.  This leads to increased critical thinking skills, including analytical skills.  It allows us to broaden our knowledge so that we as a profession are better equipped to manage complex claims.  This process increases our ability to identify and assess risk in addition to increased knowledge of the Rules, the Statutes and of course, the common law.

This is an incredibly exciting profession, but we must remain current as the law is always  evolving in all areas.   

We invite all Paralegals to attend this free substantive PD course to learn all about Class Action Litigation.

This PD intro course is an equivalent of what is taught at UBC, Faculty of Law.  It offers a quick Overview of Class Action Litigation, including:

  • Review of the relevant Statute
  • Procedural Issues
  • The Life of An Action
  • Certification
  • Settlement Process

We are honored to have our speaker for this Course. 

Chelsea Hermanson, Associate Counsel from Branch McMaster.

We look forward to seeing everyone attend on January 29, 2019.
