Bringing the legal community together in an informal setting.


We are dedicated to fostering education and mentorship within the law community – and making that accessible to everyone. To support this, The Law Office of Paul M. Cooper, Barrister hosts two annual continuing legal education events.

The Garage Series

The Garage Series was founded by Paul Cooper in 2009. As an annual Continuing Professional Development event, the Garage Series brings together defence lawyers, Crown attorneys and judges in a fun, informal and educational environment.

As part of our commitment to making continuing legal education accessible to everyone, the Garage Series is and always has been free of charge, and participants can attend in person or online via a live webcast.
