Most law schools do not offer courses on dealing with government officials.  Yet, often, the results that lawyers deliver for their clients will depend on the nature and quality of the lawyers’ interactions with government representatives or regulators.  This session looks at our interactions with government officials from a practical perspective, providing tips on how to obtain the best results for your clients including:

  • How to contact government bureaucrats (directories, tips and tricks)
  • Papering your conversations
  • When do you cross the line from representing a client to lobbying?
  • Participation in industry groups – is this lobbying, if the group does so?

This CPD program will be presented virtually. A link to the presentation will be sent to those who register.


Speaker: Gord Jepson, Deeth Williams Wall
