Feedback Required on Early Years Training Program Development
In December 2020, the Benchers approved the development of a continuing professional development (CPD) program for lawyers in their early years of practice. The Law Society first completed work to build the Professional Development Profile for Alberta Lawyers as the foundation of its overarching CPD program, which will be essential to the development of the new early years program.
The Law Society is now working with the Legal Education Society of Alberta (LESA) to develop the early years program. As we begin this work, we are seeking input from Alberta lawyers, students-at-law and firms. The information gathered through the survey will help inform the decisions of the Law Society and LESA as content and online learning methods are developed and finalized.
Once developed, the early years training program will assist practicing lawyers with their CPD planning.
