ILCO Associate Program


The Corporate course examines the various types of business ownerships. The course places particular emphasis on the following topics: the corporate and administrative procedures involved in preparing and filing articles of incorporation; organizing a corporation by way of a minute book; preparing and filing relevant incorporation-related documents that relate to the composition of a corporation i.e. articles of amendment, annual returns, extra-provincial filings, and dissolutions; financing issues and relevant searches; and share purchase agreements. In this area of law, students should be familiar with the Act(s) governing the formation and operation of a corporation. This course is especially appropriate for those currently employed as law clerks or experienced legal assistants.

The Corporate course is offered annually and usually runs from April – June (in 2023 from March 30 to July 13).
