Today’s lawyers need to do more than understand the law. In order to thrive in a professional legal environment, they must build strong relationships, demonstrate empathy and compassion, communicate effectively, manage their time and their practice, while making ethical value-based decisions, and building trust.

The Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLED) is changing how new Canadian lawyers gain the knowledge, skills, and competencies they need to succeed using engaging technology and innovative learning strategies.

CPLED is a non-profit organization that provides the training required to students before being called to the Bar in Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan.

CPLED has developed the Practice Readiness Education Program (PREP) that will help recent law school graduates gain practical legal knowledge and gain competencies in lawyer skills, practice management, professional ethics, as well as the personal attributes needed to successfully practice law in Canada.

REP is a new competency-based professional legal education program that provides students with the practical skills they need to practice in today’s changing legal landscape.

Join Dr. Kara Mitchelmore as she shares how CPLED created a new competency framework and successfully planned, designed, and executed PREP.
