Who should attend: Lawyers practicing family law, those whose practice is impacted by assisted reproductive technologies, and lawyers working with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. This course may also be of interest to wills, estates and trusts lawyers.

Learning level: All levels

As family forms evolve and more and more people access assisted reproductive technology to create families, the law is working hard to catch up. Once a subset of family and estates law, fertility law is emerging as a distinct practice area with its own best practices and challenges.

In addition to offering a primer on the practice of fertility law, this course will explore advances in reproductive medicine, the intersections of fertility law with wills/estates and family law, advanced issues in agreement drafting, cross-border practice and international surrogacies, and all the questions you never thought could be asked.

After taking this program, you will:

  • understand who is now considered "family"
  • be aware of the medical side of a fertility file
  • gain insight into assisted reproductive technology legislation or international fertility files
  • understand advanced issues in fertility law and have answers to your questions
  • be aware of the intersections between estates and family law

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.
