Our 6 part CLE-TV combo provides quick, accessible, and affordable education.

Business Basics Series

"Trying to get away from the office is impossible. Your busy schedule doesn’t always accommodate for continued education, and this program helps bridge that gap."
- Genevieve Chang, Program Lawyer

At CLEBC, we pride ourselves on delivering quality education on a variety of topics, with many ways to learn.

This year’s CLE-TV: Business Basics Series does just that by providing 6 business law webinars that can be taken from anywhere. You’ll hear from a wide range of specializing faculty, and learn in a way that fits your busy schedule. Courses are provided sequentially — just once a month, one hour at a time.

Concepts & Themes

CLEBC Program Lawyer, Genevieve Chang built this program with the newly called lawyer in mind. These are timeless topics that are consistently relevant. Chang notes that, "As a junior lawyer, it can be tough to know when to ask for help." These courses help demonstrate where your skills are strong, where they fall short, and when you need to recommend specialized assistance.

In-house counsel registrants will find the courses useful as a refresher. "This is a survey of all business law... a primer on all areas from a business perspective," says Chang. "The accessibility of this course means it would be great for anybody."

Course Material

The Business Basics Series uses the CLEBC publication Advising British Columbia Businesses as its course materials and resource guide. Course Chairs, David A. Allard from Lawson Lundell LLP and David J. Jennings of Irwin, White & Jennings, are on the advisory board for this corresponding publication, and one or both will be available to answer your questions in real time during the webinars.
