Practice Groups

Where Networking and Learning Come Together


Connect with the bench and bar in your practice area, learn and share insights through our 15 member-only Practice Groups. From teleseminars to intimate receptions to panel discussions, our Practice Groups offer Society members the chance to participate in practice-specific forums of dialogue alongside their peers. 

Upcoming Practice Group Events


PLEASE NOTE: Until it is safe to proceed in person, all of our collegial events or gatherings and education programs will be offered online where possible, or postponed to a later date. We will continue to update you on new formats for existing programs and new programs under development. For a list of all postponed or cancelled programs go here.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide further updates, including decisions for future programs, as things evolve.
