  Deadline for cancellations with reimbursement: November 4, 2016                             


The coming into force of the new Code of Civil Procedure on January 1st, 2016 ushered in a new era for all participants in the judicial system in Quebec. Trial lawyers, litigants, and judges alike have had to adapt to a new culture, new terminology, and new approaches to trial practice. With change come challenges and sometimes difficulties in our day to day practice.

In what promises to be a most informative and timely programme, the theme of this year’s 8th annual “Trial Practice Do’s and Don’ts: Hot Tips from the Experts” CLE of the English –Speaking Section of the Bar of Montreal is “The New Code of Civil Procedure: Complexities and Confusion, Ten Months In”.

The Conference will feature a distinguished panel of four jurists:  Me Peter Kalichman, who will deal with the “Case Protocol”; Me Lynne Kassie, Ad.E, who will speak about “Family Law procedural issues under the New Code”; Me Michael N. Bergman, who will deal with pre-trial and out-of-court examinations; and the Honourable David Collier, j.c.s., who will deal with Case Management and the trial judge’s perspective. Me Ian M. Solloway, Chair of the English-Speaking Section of the Bar of Montreal, will moderate the conference.  

A panel exchange will follow the presentations and a question and answer period will conclude the programme. A cocktail will follow the conference.
