Our mandate is to meet the present and future educational needs of the legal profession in British Columbia. Our goal is to develop an ongoing long-term relationship with every lawyer in the province. Everyone on our staff is eager to hear your comments and suggestions on how we can accomplish this goal.

The Continuing Legal Education Society of BC is governed by a Board of Directors appointed by the University of British Columbia, the University of Victoria, the Law Society of BC, and the BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association.
