"Last Kick at the Can 2015": Wednesday, December 16, 2015; Time: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
(Original course: Friday, June 26, 2015)

Who should attend: Experienced paralegals, legal support staff, junior lawyers, and lawyers wishing to move to this practice area.
Learning level: Intermediate/Advanced
Legal support staff and paralegals play an important role in wills, estate planning, and estate administration practices. This course is designed for more experienced legal support staff who have the basic background knowledge of assisting in these practice areas. With the coming into force of the Wills, Estates and Succession Act on March 31, 2014, there have been many changes to the practice. In this course we will review how WESA has changed the wills and estate administration practice, new issues and practice challenges to be aware of, the new probate rules and forms, and the impact that WESA has on estate litigation and court applications. We will review the more advanced practice issues that legal support staff may face, and how to anticipate problems and avoid pitfalls.

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 6.5 hours (a minimum of 1 hour will involve professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
