Launching in January, the 2018 Skilled Lawyer Series will provide lawyers across the country with an opportunity to refresh and update their skills.

There are 16 webinars in the 2018 SLS with eight webinars in each of two streams: Interpreting Financial Statements and Drafting Effective Business Documents.

Some popular topics are making a re-appearance, with updated content, and some popular presenters are also back, so be sure to check out the website for your favourites.

The Interpreting Financial Statements stream contains webinars on topics such as accounting fundamentals, understanding balance sheets, what corporate lawyers need to know about income for tax purposes, and applying accounting principles to legal drafting. Webinar #8 offers an M&A case study to show financial statements in practice.

On the Drafting Effective Business Documents side there are webinars to help you learn how to avoid ambiguity in corporate and commercial documents, draft critical boilerplate provisions, draft intellectual property licensing agreements, and avoid corporate drafting blunders.
