Legal Education Society of Alberta – Education Made Simple

At LESA, we believe that accessing quality continuing legal education should be simple. This is why we are proud to announce the launch of our brand new website. Visit our site.


We introduced significant updates to our website with you in mind. The changes improve your ability to navigate, search, and access the information and resources you need. Our optimized website also supports various platforms and mobile devices for instant access to quality continuing legal education.

Key Functions

Using the intuitive layout and features, you’ll notice a comprehensive navigation menu, where you’ll find everything from upcoming programs, latest publications, and volunteer opportunities, to CPLED information, program materials, and much more.

To make things even simpler, we’ve added quick-access buttons to the top 5 areas of our site.
