Who should attend: Personal injury litigators, both plaintiff and defence; ICBC and insurance industry personnel.

Learning level: All levels

This is CLEBC's annual, comprehensive program on personal injury practice for all personal injury litigators; junior and experienced, plaintiff and defence. This conference will also be of interest to insurance industry personnel who handle personal injury claims. As in past years, we will cover an eclectic mix of established and current topics ranging across a broad spectrum. A popular and core component of this conference is the case law update: an encapsulation of the most important procedural and substantive case developments from the past year. Previous conferences have featured substantive topics in the area of personal injury practice and procedure, expert evidence, medical evidence, engineering evidence, acturial evidence, advocacy, mediation, professionalism and ethics, and law practice management. Our goal is to provide you with valuable, current, and practice-related information from senior members of the personal injury bar.

At this course you will learn: 

  • the past year's most important procedural and substantive case law developments in the area of personal injury
  • the implications of a new element in personal injury litigation—after the event insurance
  • the range of issues that bicycles are bringing to personal injury law
  • what your lawyer's insurance policy will and will not cover
  • how to best manage the evidence of a therapist—whether leading or challenging such evidence
  • about a new and emerging head of damage: loss of housekeeping capacity
  • about a critical demarcation: the line between workers (tort law excluded) and non-workers (tort law applies)
  • a valuable array of practice tips and observations from senior members of the personal injury bar
