The Law Society of Alberta’s Learning Centre is an interactive and informative resource for Alberta lawyers. Lawyers have asked for easily available and comprehensive resources to help support them in their day-to-day practice management. While the Learning Centre is publically available, it is not intended to teach a non-lawyer how to practice law or to assist self-represented people. The Learning Centre focuses on the business of operating a law practice in compliance with Law Society Rules and does not constitute legal advice.
Our first course offering is the Small Firm Practice Course. While this course is targeted to sole or small firm practitioners, lawyers of any practice setting are welcome to explore the information and take the quizzes.
Designed to be self-paced and self-testing, the Small Firm Practice Course offers modules on key practice areas of interest to sole and small firm practitioners, ranging from practice management to trust accounting to technology issues and various pitfalls of practice. Each module is made up of a textbook, quiz and related resources. It does not attempt to cover a complete knowledge base for each area but rather captures highlights and provides an overview of core concepts.
