    Hi Valerie, please check with the Barreau du Quebec and let us know if you require any information from us to help ensure you receive credit.

  2. Valerie says:

    Good morning,

    I am wondering whether the e-tutorial is “accredited” by the Barreau du Québec continued education program or under LSUC (since training recognized by LSUC is automatically recognized by the Barreau)?

    Thank you.

  3. Lesley says:

    Hi Katy, this eTutorial on Canadian Copyright Law is generally offered at least twice a year. Please check again in early 2014 for our next offering or follow us on Twitter @Copyrightlaws

  4. Katy says:

    How often are these courses offered? I’ll be significantly less busy in early 2014, but don’t want to miss the opportunity to take this one if it’s the last one offered for awhile…

  5. Lesley says:

    Yes Sarah, you’ll be able to self-pace the course. See further information above under FAQs on how eTutorials work.

  6. Sarah says:

    Are participants required to complete the course in the 4 week period? Or is it ok to stretch it to 6 weeks?

  7. Lesley says:

    Thanks Brenda, participants spend varying amounts of time on each e-lesson. Schedule 30-60+ minutes per lesson, depending on how much further you want to research each issue as each lesson contains further URLs to review. The purpose of the eTutorial type of course provided by Copyrightlaws.com is to provide small pieces of information that you can review at your desk, print and review on your coffee break, or read on your smart phone or ereader.

  8. Brenda says:

    excuse me – I meant 2013

  9. Brenda says:

    I’m considering taking this course in 2012 – approximately how long should each e-lesson take?

  10. Lesley says:

    Hi Christine, we will email you 3 e-lessons per week. We recommend that you review the lesson within a day or two so you do not get behind. However, it is up to you to schedule your study time. If you start the course after Oct 22, then you will have to catch up on your own rather than keep pace with the class, so it is self-directed learning. Hope you will join us!

  11. Christine says:

    Especially since learners can start the course in November, is the pacing of learning self-directed or flexible?
