Who should attend: All civil litigators—including corporate/commercial litigators

Learning level: Intermediate

The stated object of the Supreme Court Civil Rules is to secure the “just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every proceeding on its merits.” A critical tool in that array is Rule 9-7 Summary Trial.

This course is a comprehensive review of the principles and strategic and tactical considerations that go into assessing and framing (or challenging) a matter that is under consideration as a summary trial. This course will examine the jurisprudence surrounding summary trials, as well as provide a collection of practical practice pointers for managing summary trial files.

This course is for intermediate-level counsel and will also be valuable for experienced counsel who seek an update and refresher. If you are an experienced litigator and “Summary Trial” brings to mind Rule 18A—you need this update!

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 3 hours (this course will contain a minimum of .5 hours pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)

Course Chair
Patrick Williams — McCarthy Tétrault LLP, Vancouver
