Over the past year, the Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLED) has been on an exciting journey. Incorporating feedback and data from students, lawyers, other professions and the latest educational practices, CPLED has sculpted a new type of bar admission program to better reflect the changing legal landscape.
The new CPLED PREP (Practice Readiness Education Program) is being piloted this year and focuses on competency-based skills for the lawyers of tomorrow. This includes areas such as practice management, working with clients, trust accounting and cultural awareness. With modernized teaching and assessment tools, the new CPLED uses a combination of in-person and online learning.
Join Dr. Kara Mitchelmore, CEO, CPLED for an overview of the new program, what it means for students and how lawyers can participate in preparing the next generation of lawyers.
