Continuing Professional Development

The CDLAM regularly hosts events for members to satisfy Law Society of Manitoba requirements for annual Continuing Legal Education (CLE).

We do this through an annual conference with guest speakers; through educational lunch seminars throughout the year; and occasional weekend seminars in conjunction with partners such as the Law Society of Manitoba.
