I highly recommend Keith's legal bookkeeping course to anyone wanting to learn the proper utilization of PCLaw and ensuring compliance with the LSO and CRA at the same time.  His course is detailed and progressive in its build up and flows well.  He summarizes it with a practical hands on session where you work through what you have learned which is great.  Keith is a great instructor as demonstrated through his session, expansive experience and interactive approach.
