Writing in August? New Course Offers Review, Prep

messy-desk-230Paralegal Candidates preparing to write the new licensing exam in August have a new way to calm their nerves.

Emond Publishing, widely regarded as one of Canada’s leading academic law publishers, has developed a five-day preparation course which will cover substantive law in the key competencies that will be tested in the revised the paralegal exam.

When Candidates write the exam in August, they will be the first cohort to be tested on substantive law, in addition to ethics and practice management. The P1 exam will be longer and cover more material than before. Attending lectures on the substantive content, walking through some sample questions, and the ability to ask questions, can help relieve the anxiety and stress.

Held in Toronto the week of June 22 at Osgoode Hall Law School, the course includes evening in-class lectures from 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm Monday to Thursday, and a full-day lecture on Saturday from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm.

Emond Exam Prep Course has lined up an all-star list of instructors. Dynamic and experienced, presenters include law professors, senior lawyers, judges and a tribunal vice-chair. Subjects covered include:

  • Ethics and professional responsibility
  • Advocacy
  • Criminal summary conviction procedures
  • Provincial Offences
  • Evidence
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Administrative law
  • Tribunal practice and procedures
  • Residential Landlord & Tenant law
  • Employment law
  • Torts, contracts and Small Claims Court
The lectures focus on substantive law, with multiple choice questions integrated within the presentation. It is not just an exam strategy session, although the program does include an exam preparation strategy component.

Course registration is now open.

An online timed practise exam is also available consisting of 60 Ethics & Professionalism sample questions. An expanded practise exam to cover the broader scope of the August exam will be available soon. These practice exams use practical scenarios to let Candidates assess their exam readiness. The practise exam gets high marks from past paralegals who used it to prepare for their exam.

Pricing: $795 plus tax for the in-person course – four evening sessions and a full Saturday, including materials and in-class practise questions

$49 plus tax for the 60-question online practise exam. New expanded exam Coming Soon! Sign Up at www.emondexamprep.ca to be emailed when the new practise exam is available.
