COVID-19 and LESA Programs

COVID-19 and LESA Programs

Last updated March 16, 2022

LESA has a number of programs planned for the upcoming educational year delivering quality continuing legal education content across a variety of practice areas. Some of our programs are being offered as in-person programs. For those who prefer to join us online, we will also continue to offer webinars and online programs via livestream from our in-house LESA Programs Space in Edmonton.

LESA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 landscape in Alberta.

If you have any questions about the COVID-19 protocols outlined below, please contact our Executive Director, Christine Sanderman, by calling 780.969.0558 or by emailing [email protected].

If the protocols or restrictions change, this page will be updated.

Mandatory Vaccination Policy for Multi-Day Programs

Proof of full vaccination (two doses) will be required to attend a multi-day in-person LESA program. To attend a multi-day LESA program in-person, you will need:

  1. Your Alberta vaccine record with QR code (paper or digital) that when scanned, displays your name, birthdate, and vaccination status; and
  2. Government issued photo identification that matches the vaccine record.

A negative COVID test will not be accepted for multi-day in-person programs, including the pre-Refresher program, Managing Wills and Estates Matters.

Single-Day Programs

For in-person single-day programs running prior to May 1, 2022, all program attendees, faculty, and staff will be required to produce proof of full COVID vaccination (2 doses) or a negative COVID test before attending an in-person program. 

To attend a single-day LESA program in-person, you will need: 

  1. Your Alberta vaccine record with QR code (paper or digital) that when scanned, displays your name, birthdate, and vaccination status; and
  2. Government issued photo identification that matches the vaccine record.

If you choose to show proof of a negative test result, the test must have been completed within 72 hours of the program start time, and must be procured at your cost. You must provide an electronic or printed copy of a negative Health Canada approved, or lab accredited, rapid antigen, rapid PCR, or lab-based PCR test. A self-test and/or self-produced documentation of a negative test result is not sufficient.

As of May 1, 2022 program attendees, faculty, and staff will no longer be required to produce proof of full COVID vaccination (2 doses) or a negative COVID test before attending an in-person single-day program.

COVID-19 Protocols at a Program

With respect to masking, sanitizing, and social distancing, LESA will follow all provincial and local public health regulations in place at the time of the program running and remains committed to ensuring the health and safety of all attendees, volunteers, staff, and their families.

Anyone who is feeling unwell should not attend an in-person program and should contact LESA for options on attending or viewing the program virtually or to move to a later session. If anyone becomes unwell during an in-person program, they must comply with provincially-mandated isolation requirements and notify LESA staff who will provide further direction.
