CDAS Bootcamp - Running a Practice

Have you ever thought of starting your own criminal law practice? Does the idea sound appealing, but the challenge insurmountable? Are you searching for answers to your many questions? Well look no further. The Criminal Defence Advocacy Society (C-DAS) and the Courthouse Libraries BC have teamed up to provide an informative session on starting a criminal law practice. This program is geared towards lawyers under five years of call, articled students, and law students. Attendees can expect to learn about the early stages of building a practice; how to steer clear of ethical and practical pitfalls; and how to conquer some of the common challenges to achieve your ideal practice. The panelists include senior and junior lawyers who run successful criminal law practices. All those interested, please RSVP through the online portal as soon as possible, as space is limited. Sincerely, -CDAS Bootcamp Committee
