He is the author of the Manuel de plaidoirie : Techniques et stratégies d’un procès civil, and has given over fifty lectures and drafted several articles  on substantive and civil procedure law, some of which have been cited approvingly by the Supreme Court of Canada.

Training: Techniques and strategies of a civil trial

During this training, which will be given in both Quebec City and Montreal, Mr. Chamberland will cover all aspects of a civil trial, highlighting, if necessary, any modifications made to the new Code of Civil Procedure.

As a new feature this year, a major part of the day’s program will focus on pleading before the Court of Appeal.  The specific rules that govern pleading before this court will be thoroughly explained and the drafting of a memorandum, an essential element when appealing, will be detailed. Major parts of the program will be exclusively devoted to questions from the participants.
