LAW COURTS CENTER
Raising The Bar In Legal Education


About Us

The Law Courts Center (LCC) has been in operation since 1991. We have established ourselves in providing business support for the legal community in areas such as:

  • Chambers Briefs Preparation
  • Legal Printing & Publishing
  • Legal Books and Gifts
  • Legal Technologies
  • Transcript Preparation

In 2000, the Center began offering professional development courses to BC Paralegals. We have grown from developing one three hour course to having designed thirty courses (with an equivalent of 294 classroom hours) by the end of 2007. Paralegal courses are now offered under the auspices of the Canadian Paralegal Institute.

We have acquired a reputation for being the first to present courses when new Rules or Acts have been introduced. We were the first to present comprehensive courses to cover Rule 51A on interlocutory procedures, Rule 68 on expedited litigation, Rule 57 on bills of costs and now Insurance (Vehicle) Law 101 on the Insurance (Vehicle) Act and the Insurance (Vehicle) Regulations.

We are also known for our scholarship; we have published over 30 desk references manuals in the last seven years. Our most well known title is the BC Litigation Guide which was published in 2005. The Guide was quickly recognized by the Law Society of BC as the most complete work on civil litigation procedures and they continue to recommend it to their members. As a teaching institution, we feel that investing in well-researched and well-written manuals allows us to provide unparalleled course materials.

As a result, the content of our programs and courses are, and will continue to be, derived from the contributions of the legal community. They provide the insight and foresight in the selection of the courses and program structure to make learning relevant to the workplace.

The Law Courts Center's instructors are specialists in their practice areas. They are selected on the basis of their professional credentials, expertise in the subject matter, their ability to impart knowledge and values and their dedication to advancing the profession.

Each course is supported by well-researched and well-written desk reference manuals which have been licensed mostly from the Law Courts Center.

 

Mission Statement

The Law Courts Center's mission is to provide lawyers with accurate, current, well-designed courses to assist in their ongoing professional development, as well as providing them with selected business support services.

Our professional development courses provide a well-balanced, fully integrated education which includes practical skills, substantive knowledge, to foster a participant's view of themselves and the community that enables them to perform effectively in a variety of legal settings.
