Who should attend: All who focus on Indigenous legal issues, including lawyers in private practice, industry, and government; Indigenous leaders; employees of First Nations or First Nations organizations; in-house counsel; and law students.
Learning level: All levels
This conference is an active discussion of Indigenous laws, exploring how space is being re-made for Indigenous laws in practice. You will learn from scholars and practitioners of Indigenous law about the legal principles and concepts underlying Indigenous legal orders, as well as about the importance of Indigenous legal processes and institutions. We will share in a discussion about how we each carry a responsibility to create space for Indigenous laws in Canada. You will hear of existing applications of Indigenous law and join in the exploration of what it means to establish a pluralistic approach to legal problem-solving in Canada.
You are invited to join this conversation, both theoretical and practical, about how Indigenous legal traditions and the Common Law might productively co-exist.
Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 12.5 hours (a minimum of 2 hours will involve professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
2 hours of CPD will be also applicable toward ADR or mediation credits.
