OUR STORY BEGINS WITH
A STORY YOU ALREADY KNOW.


The story of the Canadian lawyer – where big workloads, busy schedules, and budget constraints make it tough to fit in those mandatory CPD courses.  

We’ve been there. We get it.

We think that earning your CPD credits can be easier, more convenient and less expensive. So we set out to offer high-quality, easily accessible CPD, without the big cost and time commitment.


So what exactly is Grapple Law?


Grapple Law is online CPD that has been produced, designed and optimized for online viewing. We did our homework, and research says that online learning is maximized when viewed in 10 to 30 minute periods. We also know that high-quality audio and video make for a more engaging experience. So that’s what we do. 
 

"This is head and shoulders above the live streaming and archived webinar sites that everyone uses now to get their CLE hours."
- Rashesh Mandani J.D.

Simple ideas executed well; that’s what Grapple Law is. We’re working to make the lives of the Canadian lawyer a little easier - so you can get on with your work, and your life.
