Students Can Enroll in CPLED while Waiting for their Marks

The Benchers approved a motion to enable students involved in the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) process to enroll in the CPLED program while awaiting their NCA exam marks.

Previously, NCA students required their marks before applying to CPLED which starts in September and October each year. Currently, NCA exam results are not available until November.

CPLED, the Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education, refers to both the bar admission course across the Prairies, and to the non-profit organizations mandated with the task of administering one portion of the pre-call process in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Bar admission preparation is comprised of two distinct parts: participation in the bar admission course, and the articling experience in a law firm or organization. The CPLED program is the bar admission course in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
