Seminars

At Bishop & McKenzie, we are a client-focused law firm and proudly participate in continuing education programs for individuals in a range of matters of law, including wills and estates, employment law, arbitration and mediation, and many more.

Offered through Metro Continuing Education and Next Step Continuing Education, Bishop & McKenzie lawyers hold seminars on a variety of topics for law education. These are offered through the generous support of the Alberta Law Foundation. A nominal fee is sometimes due upon registration to secure a seat as space is limited for each seminar.
