Learning level: All levels

Class proceedings continue to evolve as a powerful litigation mechanism and the differences that exist in jurisprudence across jurisdictions makes the class action process extremely complex. As actions cross provincial borders, you will be faced with important strategic, tactical, and practice decisions, such as where to file and how to best manage the certification process.

This year's conference will prepare you to manage a range of issues both long-standing and emerging in class proceedings; from COVID-19 related litigation, to privacy and cyber-security class actions, to public interest cases, to ethical issues in class actions. With BC emerging as a popular class action destination, of particular note is our panel discussion on the differnces between the BC and Ontario class action regimes and what that will mean for class actions in BC. Finally, again anchoring the conference will be the ever-popular Cross Canada Update panel and the Judges Panel. 

You will learn from leading counsel and jurists at the center of emerging class action jurisprudence and you will receive a comprehensive review of the issues, trends, and practices shaping class action litigation today.

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 5 hours (this course will contain a minimum of 1 hour pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management). Please note: The CPD hours of the rebroadcast will either meet or exceed the CPD hours of the original live webinar course.
