Our fall webinar season is officially underway

October 15, 2020

On October 8, we kicked off our fall 2020 season of new webinars with Making a Will in British Columbia. We were joined by 265 attendees, who offered enthusiastic feedback: 

"Excellent presentation, the panelists explained in ways we can understand, and gave some examples in scenarios. Thank you."

"Enjoyed hearing from various experts and their perspectives. Thank you!"

"Was very informative and presented very well. Thanks to all the panelists."

"Mix of structure and Q and A was great, and combining similar answers was helpful."

"Thank you — good info and well organized and presented as always."

The recording of the webinar is now available, and it's (almost) better than the original. Highlights include:

  • a video replay of the webinar with closed captioning available (when you watch on YouTube)

  • summary of highlights and when they happened during the hour (so you can fast forward, at will!)

  • links to additional resources

And learning how to make a will was just the beginning

Our fall season continues with two more webinars on wills and estates topics.

Contesting a Will in British Columbia: In last week’s webinar, we touched on whether children must be treated equally in a will. On Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at noon PT, lawyers Amy Mortimore and Zachary Rogers of Clark Wilson LLP go deeper on that question and others. Tune in to learn the who, why and how when it comes to challenging a will.

Settling an Estate in BC: Town Hall Edition: Winding up an estate takes time and effort. Our series on wills and estates concludes town hall-style — come with your questions! Join us on Tuesday, November 17 at noon PT for a free one-hour webinar with returning presenters lawyer Nicole Garton and paralegal Stacie Ayukawa.

More webinars in development

We are planning additional webinars through the winter months. Topics we're working on include problems with neighbours, dealing with debt, and Canada's new divorce laws. We welcome any ideas you have for future webinar topics! Send us an email at info@peopleslawschool.ca.
