Lawyers in most Canadian provinces are subject to requirements to complete and record a set amount of continuing professional development (“CPD”) each calendar year, failing which they can be fined and/or subject to an administrative suspension from practice. In addition to the extensive program of internal CPD that we have for many years required our lawyers to complete, Miller Thomson has responded to the mandatory CPD regime by beginning to offer complimentary in person, webcast and OnDemand CPD to our clients’ in-house lawyers.
While we continue to offer live CPD, lawyers in jurisdictions outside Ontario my only claim CPD from our OnDemand Library when viewing with a colleague. If you have not yet completed your 2013 mandatory CPD, please contact your Miller Thomson lawyer or Ruth Alexandor, Assistant Director of Lawyer and Client Education or Kate Culver, our Continuing Legal Education Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for individual access to MTLEARN.ca, our OnDemand CPD library. If you are interested in being added to the invitation list for our 2014 live CPD, please also contact us.
