Help! The “search box” doesn’t work?

The above bar is not a search box. Instead, the bar works as a filter.

If you know the title of a course, presentation, or paper, you can enter the full or partial title in the bar. Or if you are looking for resources by a specific contributor, you can enter the contributor’s full or partial last name into the bar.

If you want to search by keyword, please use the CLEBC’s full search function on the top right corner.

If you want to browse by practice area, please use the drill down menu on the left.

What are “Selections”?

“Selections” are pre-tailored packages of presentations that CLEBC staff have created in the following categories:

  • Practice Area Picks– notable presentations in the core areas of Business, Family, Litigation, Real Estate, and Wills, Estates & Trusts to save you time in finding the gems.
  • Practice Area Fundamentals – engaging presentations providing fundamental knowledge in the core areas so you know which presentations to start with.
  • 100% Ethics– presentations which completely focus on and qualify for “professional responsibility and ethics, practice management, client care and relations” credit, so you can easily complete your two hours.
  • The Well-Rounded Lawyer– presentations on topics like cultural competency and lawyer wellness, to prepare you for practising at a high standard in all situations.

Under “Coming Soon to Courses on Demand”, it says courses will be available “approximately 30 days after the course date”. It has now been 30 days since a course was offered, and I don’t see it in Courses on Demand. Why?

Most of the time, you are able to watch the course you want in Courses on Demand within 30 days of the original course date. For the months of November and December, the 30 day period could be longer.
