A child protection case needs to be handled delicately. Our presenters teach you the strategic and advocacy skills for each stage of the case. They reinforce your understanding with numerous practical demonstrations, including conduct of temporary care and custody hearings, summary judgment motions, conferences, opening and closing statements, voir dires, and examinations of witnesses. Finally, you receive an array of relevant materials, including topical case law, precedents, and social science literature. You leave with the confidence that comes from an intense focus on the fundamentals of this area of family law.

  • Learn the grounds, timing and case law in making the finding "in need of protection"
  • Hear about the law of hearsay in protection proceedings
  • Understand the impact of statutory findings for First Nations, Inuit and Métis children
  • Get tips on preparing for trial
