A Year in Review: Judicial Golden Nuggets

Jul 22, 2022

In keeping with the annual tradition of getting together with the local bar in the regions throughout Alberta, the Court of Queen’s Bench is pleased to be presenting an information session for Lawyers and Students-at-law this summer. This year’s seminar covers procedural updates and cases of interest decided over the past 12 months in the criminal, family, and civil practice areas. We will also have an update on SafeRoads judicial review decisions, some information on the surrogate practice reforms and the Court’s French language policy.

Each seminar will be conducted by a Justice of this Court. Participating lawyers, as officers of the Court, and their students may ask questions about changes to Court practice and provide feedback about general issues of concern in their region.  We look forward to the opportunity to meet with you and discuss recent developments in the law and practice in an informal and relaxed setting.

The locations, dates and times of the seminars are currently scheduled as follows:
