Courthouse Libraries BC has launched a new digital service for BC family lawyers and designated paralegals. The Family Law Organizer (“FLO”) promotes awareness of family law-specific CPD programs by aggregating key CPD providers’ course calendars in a unified, searchable calendar with events tagged by subject. FLO also helps CPD organizers plan tentative dates for events and offers members a forum to suggest CPD ideas for courses or even joint research projects. A classifieds-style section of the tool lets members post and browse opportunities such as locums, articling positions and peer-to-peer service offerings related to family law.

FLO is the first community to join Courthouse Libraries BC’s new online platform for lawyers (currently in Beta version). FLO is overseen by a diverse steering committee of dedicated family lawyers and paralegals. Those interested in learning more and receiving an invitation to try out the free service should contact Nate Russell at nrussell@courthouselibrary.ca
