Brown Bag Lunches

The Trusts and Estates Section hosts monthly Brown Bag Lunches (BBL) at participating sites throughout the province. The BBL's typically occur the third Tuesday of each month (excluding July and August) and different topics are discussed each month. Local members gather in different locations and join by conference call. Bring your own lunch and join in on the discussions!

These sessions can be claimed as substantive CPD hours towards your annual Law Society requirement under the “Study Group” category. However, please note that the OBA does not maintain attendance records for these sessions, and as such, you should maintain your own records to personally prove attendance and participation in each session.
