Aboriginal Law Conference 2021: Call for Papers

CLEBC’s Aboriginal Law Conference will be held on Friday, November 5, 2021.

This annual conference brings together leading Aboriginal law practitioners to address current and emerging issues with a focus on BC. We will explore the legal and pragmatic implications of current developments affecting Indigenous Peoples, governments, and industry. We aim to provide those working in the area with a substantive look at the trends and practical issues to meet the increasingly complex and sophisticated issues in this area of practice.

Lawyers, academics, the judiciary, Indigenous community members, and all other professionals interested in the area of Aboriginal law are invited to submit an outline of the paper they would like to present at the conference.

Please take a moment to review the agendas from 2019 and 2020 for an idea of the topics that have been covered recently. We do our best to have different topics every year, unless there have been significant developments or changes in the area.

Please send your submissions and/or any questions you have via e-mail to: Teresa Sheward at teresas@cle.bc.ca with the following information:

  • Your name and organization;
  • Proposed topic; and
  • ½ to 1-page outline of your proposed paper and presentation;

All submissions received by Wednesday, June 30, 2021 will be reviewed and considered by the Conference Chairs and Planning Committee.

Thank you for your continued support of the Continuing Legal Education Society of BC. We look forward to receiving your ideas and to seeing you at our Aboriginal Law Conference. Please save the dates!
