Pensions and benefits law is a hybrid area of practice. Lawyers practicing in this specialty advise on pensions and benefit issues, but must also understand any related labour and employment, tax, human rights, business, family, and other legal issues that arise in tandem. Does this hybrid area of practice force a pensions and benefits lawyer to be a "generalist"? Probably not, but even as specialists, pensions and benefit lawyers must understand the key legal developments and trends that could have an impact on their area of the law in order to serve their clients competently.

Our stellar faculty will canvass the intersection of pensions and benefits law with recent critical developments in other related areas of law, as well as actuarial practice. Join us to discuss recent significant developments in:

  • family law affecting the split and settlement of pension entitlements
  • actuarial practice affecting pension plans
  • labour & employment law affecting pensions, benefits & executive compensation
  • business and corporate law concepts that underlie the pension investment rules
