Becoming a Lawyer in Saskatchewan
Applying for Admission as a Student-at-Law
The Law Society of Saskatchewan administers the rules, regulations
and procedures for articling students and their principals. One of
the first steps in your bar admissions process is to apply to
become accepted as a student-at-law by the Law Society.
You must be registered with The Law Society of Saskatchewan as a
student-at-law before you can article or serve as a law clerk in
Saskatchewan or attend the Saskatchewan CPLED Program. Time spent
at a law office is not counted toward your articling period unless
you are a student-at-law.
The requirements for students-at-law are set out in Rules 149 to
162 of The Law Society of Saskatchewan. Read them carefully and
follow them because The Law Society strictly adheres to them.
To attain student-at-law status, you must apply to The Law
Society of Saskatchewan by completing and submitting the
Application for Admission as Student-at-Law (Form A-1) and two
certificates of character (Form A-3) along with the fee of
$100 plus $5 GST for a total fee
While there is no specific deadline for applying to attain
student-at-law status, students must be a student-at-law in order
to file Articles of Clerkship and to apply for the CPLED
Program. The deadline for applications for the CPLED Program
is generally set for the end of June (see Bar
Admissions Calendar for upcoming deadlines).

completing your application, please contact Cheryl Eberle, Membership
