Knowledge. Inspiration. Power.

Pacific Business & Law Institute offers over 40 courses, conferences and forums in locations across Canada. We are a close-knit team of lawyers and professionals based in Vancouver who have been committed to researching pressing issues, trends and legal and social policy developments for over 25 years. Approximately half of our programs are focused on significant issues impacting Aboriginal people.

Every program offered by PBLI qualifies for a minimum of 5 hours of professional development with the Law Societies of BC and Upper Canada towards lawyers' mandatory reporting requirement of 12 professional development hours.

Since 1989, PBLI has been bringing together First Nations, government, academic, professional and industry leaders to participate in interactive educational events of unsurpassed quality, unique for their multi-disciplined nature, variety of perspectives and the resultant cross-pollination of ideas.

PBLI’s aboriginal law programs are a vital part of my own continuing legal education. Their programs are current, informative and lively. These sessions bring together lawyers, academics, First Nation leaders, government policy and decision makers by putting the law in the larger context of what is happening on the ground and in the halls of government.
