Please note: This course will not be added to Courses on Demand. Courses involving professional speakers and skills-based workshops generally do not get added to Courses on Demand.
Who should attend: Lawyers with one to three years' experience. This may also be of interest to articling students who have completed a substantial portion of their articles.
Learning level: Fundamental
Lawyers in their initial years of practice often do not get the support and guidance needed, resulting in the premature departure of many talented people from a career in law, not to mention the pervasive mental health challenges that the legal profession faces.
We designed this program to help you build a solid foundation for a rewarding and sustainable legal career through a fully integrated one-year curriculum that combines monthly educational programs with small-group coaching and one-on-one mentorship.
You will work with a designated coach, mentor, and small group of lawyers for 12 months to foster community learning, networking, and support. With a commitment of 2 to 3 hours each month, you will:
- create your own plan for success
- develop skills for an effective practice
- learn strategies for navigating difficult situations
- set yourself up for success in the long term
Check out the agenda for a month-to-month breakdown of what to expect throughout the year.
AMP is delivered entirely online through Zoom, enabling you to participate from anywhere. You will have access to recordings of the educational programs in case you miss one or want to go back and review.
By becoming an AMP member for the year, you can meet all your CPD requirements for 2024 and 2025, including your ethics and practice management credits. (Note: This is based on the CPD requirements and rules set by the Law Society of BC. We can assist with claiming credit in other jurisdictions.)

Don't think you have enough time for AMP?
Here's what AMP alumni say…
"I used to be convinced that law wasn't for me—that I couldn't make it, that I wouldn’t find my people or space, nor could I envision a future in law that I desired. Now, I'm excited to be a lawyer again."
"I empathize with the reactions I've seen from junior lawyers, as I likely would have expressed similar sentiments during my first or second year in practice. Reflecting on my past, I realize that many of my choices related to coaching, professional development (PD), and mentoring were made from a short-sighted, 'survival' mindset. Now, I would advise considering such programs as strategic investments in one's career and professional growth. Participating in these initiatives can equip lawyers with the skills needed to ensure their legal practice is not only what they envision but also sustainable over the long term."
Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 24 hours (this course will contain a minimum of 8 hours pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
