Dear CLEBC community,

Ensuring the health and safety of the community, our valued customers, contributors, and employees continues to be CLEBC’s highest priority. In light of the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are working to do our part in helping to reduce the spread of the virus and to support the legal community.

We are holding all our CPD courses online through Zoom, providing complimentary online wellness and well-being courses/resources (see below), and offering reduced course pricing.

Additionally, If you are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19, you may be eligible for further reductions in our course prices. Please contact Customer Service for more information.

We greatly appreciate the trust and confidence you have placed in CLEBC and we welcome your feedback on how we can best support you during this challenging and unprecedented time. You can also read CLEBC’s COVID-19 Safety Plan here.

Please stay safe and healthy,

CLEBC recognizes the importance of lawyer well-being and supporting BC legal professionals with mental health issues. It is even more important to provide support for lawyers during the challenges as a result of the pandemic. We are proud to provide these wellness-related resources at no cost.

CLEBC is here for you during this challenging transition and we want to make sure our courses are accessible to all of our customers. We are pleased to offer our Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 programs at a reduced rate.

To ensure that all BC lawyers could properly advise clients on the issues they might encounter during the pandemic, this past spring our Programs department quickly created 28 new webinars on the subject of the coronavirus serving over 4800 legal professionals.

These programs can now be accessed via Courses on Demand.

Our physical office remains closed until further notice; however, CLEBC employees continue to work remotely and can be reached via email. CLEBC Customer Service representatives will continue to support you over the phone or email.
