Partnering with a faculty roster of local judges and experienced counsel, we are pleased to announce our 2023 Surrey “Inns of Court" mentoring program that will be held over 7 evenings commencing September 28, 2023 and continuing monthly until February 22, 2024.  

The Surrey Inns of Court was established in the long standing inherited English tradition of our profession fostering meaningful and lasting mentoring relationships between junior lawyers and experienced counsel and judges to promote professionalism and competence.   

All sessions will be held at Morgan Creek Golf Course Creekside Room  (except for the practical Advocacy evenings) and will include discussions of topics relevant to newer counsel along with ample time to connect with senior colleagues and members of the bench over dinner and/or canapés. 

Cost for the entire series of 7 sessions is $500.00. Price includes:

  • meals on five of the evenings and canapés for two evenings
  • a minimum  of 12 hours of CPD credit (including 2 hours of ethics/practice management)
  • SBA membership for the balance of 2023 

If you are interested in the Inns, please complete the attached application form and email it to Cheryl Stanley.   Each application will considered independently.  The committee wishes to ensure that the junior bar is well represented from all areas of practice.

A detailed syllabus will be forthcoming.

Please note that the Inns of Court is a series where sessions build on previous topics and discussions.  Participants are expected to attend all sessions where possible.
