PBLI - Development in Aboriginal and Indigenous Law 2020

Pacific Business and Law Institute
The state of Aboriginal law in Canada is constantly evolving, and for those working in this dynamic area, including those who advise First Nations or governments, it is essential to remain current on the latest developments. Staying abreast of the changing landscape is fundamental for advisors to practise effectively, and for First Nations to exercise their rights to their greatest benefit. This program assembles leaders in the field of Aboriginal law to provide delegates with in-depth information and practical insights, to ensure that they are prepared to effectively address current challenges and to take proactive steps to avoid common pitfalls. For those who wish to remain current and informed, this program should not be missed.
