"Small Firm, Big Heart"

Junior lawyer toolkit series

Neha Chugh and Anne-Marie McElroy are thrilled to present Solo Queens: A junior lawyer toolkit series!

This 12 part series was born out of their successful Legal Aid Ontario billing seminar, LAO Queens. Through this project, they realized that there was a wider need for support and information for new calls, not only with respect to substantive law but practice management as well.

The Junior Lawyer Toolkit series is geared towards lawyers 5 years of call and under in order to develop a successful practice as a criminal defence lawyer.

Sessions will take place once a month by zoom, in an engaging and interactive format that will leave time for questions and the occasional dance party.


SEMINARS:   LAWYER $25     LAW STUDENT $10

RECORDED SEMINARS:   $25

ANNUAL PASS OFFER:  Lawyer $250      Law Student $100
