Continuing Professional Development Opportunities

The Continuing Professional Development Committee (CPD Committee) provides legal professional development opportunities to members of the Law Society of Yukon.

The Committee focuses on topics that will assist members to increase their legal knowledge and practical skills, remain aware of their professional obligations, and provide better client service.

The CPD Committee encourages members to bring forward ideas or topics for future CPD activities at any time.

The Committee would also like to share with members the Notice to the Members of May 2020. The Notice includes a list of links to providers who offer CPD activities remotely. Membership is not a requirement for access. Click here for the Notice.
