Burnaby Public Library, Vancouver Island Regional Libraries, and Cranbrook Public Library, to name a few, will be hosting seminars for their patrons during Law Week.
Law Week also corresponds with Make-a-Will Week this year so many of the seminars will be covering wills topics!
The purpose of Make-a-Will week is to encourage the people of BC to write their wills, or bring existing wills up to date.
