Jointly presented by The Law Society of Manitoba, the Manitoba Bar Association and the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Law

Whether you graduated in this century or the last, contract law has changed since you were in law school. The 2021 Pitblado Lectures will provide a comprehensive update on an array of contracts topics. From the rights and obligations arising from the duty of good faith, to the validity of e-signatures, to what a commercial arbitration clause really means for your client, the sessions will offer thought-provoking discussion and useful take-aways. The Lectures will also address COVID-related concerns, particularly in the employment law context, as we start to move out of the pandemic.

Please join us for a day all about contract law updates with a focus on issues that will be of particular interest to anyone with a solicitor’s practice.

Eligibility for CPD Hours:

This program may be reported for up to 6 hours of CPD activity, including 0.5 hour of EPPM.

The 2021 Organizing Committee is busy planning for this year’s Isaac Pitblado Lectures. Although we are starting to see the light at the end of the COVID-19 pandemic tunnel, we are not yet at a point where we can confidently plan for a large gathering of people in a confined space. To ensure that the Lectures take place in a way that is safe for everyone, we are again planning a virtual event.
