Help PREPare the lawyers of tomorrow – join the team!
Meeting the requirements to be called to the Bars of Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan takes a whole team of educators, lawyers, simulated clients, assessors and coaches.
Lawyers can participate in PREP by applying for the role of facilitator, assessor and/or practice manager. To view the roles and apply, visit Join the Team.
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.
PREP (Practice Readiness Education Program) is being piloted in 2019 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, PREP uses a combination of in-person and online learning.
Join Dr. Kara Mitchelmore, CEO, CPLED for an overview of the new Bar admission program, what it means for students and how lawyers can participate in preparing the next generation of lawyers.
