Updated | CLEBC Statement Regarding COVID-19

Practice Point


Last Updated: April 9, 2020

Ensuring the health and safety of the community, our valued customers, contributors, and employees is CLEBC’s highest priority. In light of the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are taking the following steps immediately to do our part in helping to reduce the spread of the virus.

New Online Courses

During this time, we will provide topical and relevant online courses to assist you during this transition. We are pleased to offer our new live webinars at the reduced prices of $29/hour for the month of April and $49/hour for the month of May to ensure their accessibility to all of our customers.

Our first two pilot programs, Working Remotely in the Face of COVID-19 and Working from Home Safely – Cybersecurity in the Face of COVID-19 were well-received and attended by the legal community. We look forward to providing more upcoming remote events over the following weeks.

Scheduled online rebroadcasts of recent CLEBC courses will also be available in place of our in-person and webinar courses from April – June, 2020.

If there is an area of practice that you would like us to address during this time, please feel free to contact us!

Courses (in-person and webinars)

ALL other previously scheduled programs from April – June, 2020 have been postponed.

CLEBC Customer Service will contact registrants of these courses by email to explain options to receive a refund, register for an online rebroadcast session between April and June, or set up a Courses on Demand subscription.

Publications and online products

We will continue to update our CLEBC Publications in online, but not print formats. Online Practice Manuals will continue to be accessible to subscribers. Standing order customers will be contacted directly regarding their subscriptions.

Courses on Demand, Online Practice Manuals, Online Course Materials, CLEBC Precedent Collection, and Case Digest Connection will remain accessible and we do not anticipate any disruptions to access to these products.

Office closed but staff is working remotely

Although we will be closing our physical office, CLEBC employees will be working remotely. All staff will be available to you by email. CLEBC Customer Service representatives will continue to support you over the phone or email.

We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding during this challenging and unprecedented time; and the trust and confidence you have put in CLEBC.

Please stay safe and healthy,

Linda W. Russell
CEO, Continuing Legal Education Society of BC
