I don’t know if everyone is aware, but the Law Society of Upper Canada disabled a very useful feature of their website this year. In previous years, LSUC maintained a listing of all accredited Continuing Professional Development [CPD] programs on their site. For some reason, they decided to stop doing that this year.
Now, in order to find CPD programming, one has to manually search through the various providers like LSUC, OBA, CBA, etc. This is very time consuming and much more difficult to coordinate. Last year, I had a convenient calendar of almost all available programming in one place. This year, I’ve resorted to Googling “LSUC accredited CPD”, which is significantly less efficient.
While some large firms are able to coordinate all of these requirements in-house, small practices and solos are left scrounging around. This is particularly challenging for those in a niche field like immigration.
If you’re a lawyer in Ontario, please take a moment to contact the CPD department at LSUC and ask them to restore this function. They can be reached on Twitter at @LSUCCPD, on Facebook, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and online at http://ecom.lsuc.on.ca/cpd.
After having a website that was under construction for 3 years, I’m making a fresh start. Until I get everything organized, I’m posting my office information.
