Advanced skills certificate for young & mid-career civil litigators: analysis, process and strategy

John Campion has chosen to partner with us, the Toronto Lawyers Association, to present his Advanced Skill Certificate for Young & Mid-Career Civil Litigators: Analysis, process and strategy. This eight module series starts October 30th, and ends in February 2019, and will be held at the offices of Gardiner Roberts LLP.

Responding to many requests for mentorship and guidance John designed this program and brought in a host of experts from all different areas of law and the legal profession to share with young lawyers skills and techniques that usually take a lifetime to develop. With over twenty years of teaching experience and forty years of mentoring lawyers, John's students have gone on to great success in public service, the Court of Appeal, Trial Division, heading legal departments and managing law firms.

Over this certificate program, attendees will be taught a three-step system to understand any area of law quickly: Analysis, Process and Strategy. Drawing on an eclectic combination of jurisprudence, law, process and everyday wisdom, John and his faculty of leading judges and practitioners will unpack each step. Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a Certificate in Advanced Civil Litigation and become a better advocate for your clients!
