2021 Annual Pass subscriptions

Professor Sankoff’s Seminars is now offering a special deal on a 2021 pass for all of our continuing professional development seminar. One payment gets you access to seminars currently scheduled, and those set to be added in September-December. It is the single most affordable way to get your access to great CPD content, all at a 20% discount of our regular seminar prices. It also saves you the trouble of registering for each seminar on a monthly basis.

As a free added bonus, Annual Pass subscribers will get exclusive content! Professor Sankoff produces Case Alerts! videos profiling important cases with the potential to affect your practice in 10 to 15 minute “bites” . Two to four times a month, you’ll get Case Alerts! delivered straight to your in-box, including an overview of the case plus Professor Sankoff’s trademark legal analysis, explaining what this case means to you!

We are very excited about our Case Alerts, and are planning to expand them to include discussions with prominent lawyers around the country discussing what happened in the case and what it means going forward.

We have produced a few Case Alerts already, and each profiles an extremely recent decision of note. See an example, R v Martin: The Admissibility of Electronic Evidence (full case alert). To get the full versions, become an Annual Pass Subscriber!

Some praise for our new Case Alerts! videos from an Edmonton criminal defence lawyer: “Love the format – they are absolutely excellent – leading edge – thought provoking – 2 thumbs up”

We have three different Annual Passes, and each is available to Young Lawyers (0-5 years) and Senior Lawyers (5+ years alike). Please note that if you have already registered for a few seminars in 2021 but would like to change over to an All-Inclusive Pass, you can do so! Simply purchase the pass, and write to us. We’ll refund any payments for previously purchased 2021 seminars.

Bonus Material Package


Due to popular demand, you are now able to purchase our Case Alerts and Cheat Sheets separately from our Annual Pass. Our Case Alerts produced by Professor Sankoff run between 10-20 minutes and provide bite-sized overviews of critical decisions coming out in the courts. They normally come out on Friday or Saturday and are a good way to get a little bit of fun learning at the end of the week. Our plan is to produce 50 each year! Please find a few examples below.

1) Electronic Evidence: Our First Case Alert, free to everyone, examines a problematic issue: the admissibility of “screenshots” taken by third parties and whether these meet the requirements of the Canada Evidence Act. The case is R v Martin, 2021 NLCA 1. (January)

2) Section 276: This alert explores a problem arising with sexual activity evidence, and the application of s 276 to non-sexual assault prosecutions. It addresses a very helpful decision you’ll want to have to narrow the scope. An edited version is available. (January)

3) Right of Reply: This alert explores the Nunavut Court of Appeal decision of R v Akpalialuk, 2021 NUCA 2 and the right of reply in addressing the judge or jury at the end of the case. Edited version available. (January)

Starting this month, we now also offer Cheat Sheets! These cheat sheets will cover particular areas of interest and include 3-4 page summaries of important jurisprudential issues. We are planning on creating 8-10 a year. Email us for a sample!

Our Case Alerts and our Cheat Sheets are part of the exclusive material our annual pass holders receive including access to our seminars plus the video recordings afterwards. If at any point you wish to convert to an annual pass and also get access to all of our 2021 Seminars, you can upgrade by contacting our Seminar Coordinator.
