Quality mentorship is hard to come by in the legal profession these days. Especially for young civil litigators, getting trained by someone who has not only been to trial but to the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court of Canada is rare.

Such a mentor has designed this program.

As counsel in over 300 reported cases, John Campion has litigated in courts and tribunals across Canada – at all levels. With over 20 years of teaching experience and 40 years of mentoring lawyers, John’s students have gone on to public service, the Court of Appeal, Trial Division, head legal departments and manage law firms.

In this 8-module program, you will be taught a three-step system to understand any area of law quickly: Analysis, Process and Strategy.

Drawing on an eclectic combination of jurisprudence, law, process and everyday wisdom, John and his faculty of leading judges and practitioners will unpack each step. Upon successful completion of the program, you will become a better advocate for your clients!
