Professional Development

Unlock Your Full Potential as an Advocate with Our Dynamic Curriculum


Hands-on, practical CPD in a collaborative environment. That’s the hallmark of all Advocates' Society educational programming. We offer more than 100 civil, administrative, family, criminal and special litigation programs – and each one is taught by experienced faculty members who are acknowledged experts in their field. When you learn from us you learn from the best. 


Here is why thousands of Canadian advocates from coast to coast choose to learn with The Advocates’ Society every year:


Programming Options

We specialize in exceptional content for every experience level, practice area and budget – from Feature Conferences to regional programs, like our annual Court House Series. Demonstrate your commitment to advocacy skills development by earning a Skills Certificate



We are the only CPD provider who trains our faculty, so you will receive consistent and exceptional coaching and feedback in every workshop. New for 2024, new Junior Members (under 5 years of call) will enjoy access to FREE essential skills workshops when they sign up for the plenary session of the program. More details coming soon!


Networking Opportunities

Attend panels, workshops or major symposia in-person and connect with other members while you learn.


Can’t join us in person? You can opt for convenient live or archived webcasts.
