PREP schedule change announcement

As the Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLED) continues to develop and prepare to launch the new Practice Readiness Education Program (PREP), refinements to their processes are ongoing and this has resulted in minor changes to the previously released schedule.  

CPLED has been consulting with key stakeholders across participant jurisdictions to ensure they are delivering the highest quality Bar admission program while understanding the unique needs of each jurisdiction. As a result, the  PREP schedule has been slightly adjusted to not impact Bar call dates.

“PREP prepares young lawyers to meet the highest standards once called to the Bar, and we didn’t want to delay Bar call dates in any way,” says Dr. Kara Mitchelmore, CEO of CPLED. “We know that our students are anxious to get their legal careers underway.”

Under the new schedule, students will still have flexibility as to when they begin the online Foundation Modules, which opens on Monday, June 1. The schedule adjustments will ensure enough time for CPLED to assess and release the final assessment results by Friday, May 14, 2021.

“Maintaining the integrity of the program while not delaying students entering the profession is of the utmost importance to CPLED, and we believe we have accomplished this with the new schedule,” says Dr. Mitchelmore.

Due to the schedule change, registration will now open on Tuesday, March 31 at Students are encouraged to register early to ensure they select the schedule that best suits their needs.
