Who should attend: Civil litigators, family law litigators, and anyone who drafts affidavits.

Learning Level: Fundamental/Intermediate

Affidavits are the most important and most common form of evidence that a litigator will ever encounter or use. In this practice-oriented course, expert litigators will take you through how not to draft an affidavit, how to dissect an affidavit from the other side, how to tell your client's story as governed by law, practice, ethics and the rules of evidence, and how to avoid common mistakes. You will learn how to master this essential skill set under the guidance of experienced counsel and members of the Supreme Court of BC.

At this course, you will learn:

  • the essentials of good affidavit drafting
  • how to avoid common and not-so-common pitfalls found in affidavit drafting
  • best practices for handling affidavit evidence
  • about ethics and professionalism and their relation to affidavit evidence
  • to apply what you already know of affidavit practice with problems taken from the real world

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 3 hours (a minimum of 30 minutes will involve aspects of professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
