CPD Cinemas and Year-end Professionalism Series

Looking for professionalism credits?

Osler offers a series of events in the second half of each year designed to help in-house counsel meet annual professionalism credit requirements:

Year-end Professionalism Series

Our popular Year-end Professionalism Series is back, with a range of diverse topics and engaging speakers. Our series includes CPD programs that are both informative and interesting. Our four-program series runs from October to December and includes a range of programs each offering professionalism credits. We will also be offering a program that qualifies for the new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Credit that became effective this January 1, 2018 and requires you to complete a total of three Professionalism Hours that focus on advancing equality, diversity and inclusion in the lawyer and paralegal professions between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2020.  Find a topic that interests you below:

  • Lawyer Strong® (Stress Resilience On the Go) — Wednesday, October 24, 2018

Join internationally recognized burnout and resilience expert Paula Davis Laack as she discusses the importance of staying in your stress sweet spot, and provides resilience skills to reduce and recover from stressful situations. Learn more.

  • Canada’s Indigenous Peoples — What Reconciliation Means for All Canadians — Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Reconciliation with Canada’s Indigenous Peoples is a matter of respect and recognition, of building bridges and new relationships. Osler is delighted to host a discussion with Senator Murray Sinclair, who served as Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). Join us as Senator Sinclair discusses the TRC’s findings, reflects on the TRC’s report and calls to action for lawyers. Learn more.

  • Random Acts of Professionalism — Monday, November 19, 2018

Borrowing from the unique format of a Toronto lecture series that has been running sold-out shows for 10-plus years, Osler is pleased to invite you to our inaugural Random Acts of Professionalism program in which three Osler partners will each give their personal spin on a professionalism topic, followed by an entertaining Q&A. Learn more.

  • Making Persuasive Arguments — Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Justice Marshall Rothstein, Globe and Mail columnist Tony Keller and strategic board expert Jean Fraser will discuss the art of making a persuasive argument; whether in court, in the board room or in writing an opinion piece that captures your audience’s attention. Learn more.


CPD Cinema

Our Year-end Professionalism Series is capped off with our CPD Cinema, a re-broadcast of six recorded CPD programs in December in our Toronto office. Two or more lawyers watching recorded programs together permits the CPD credits to be entered as a live program, rather than individually watched recordings. This is a fun event, and the concession stand will be open! (Popcorn, snacks and drinks will be provided.)



Details of each program will be posted on osler.com as they become available. To be added to our CPD mailing list for any or all of these programs, please email professionaldevelopment@osler.com
