New Professional Conduct Ruling – Contingency Agreements - In June, the Ethics Committee considered a rather important question that arose in relation to contingency agreements designed to protect members’ remuneration in the event a client unilaterally decides to discontinue an action, or to change lawyers before conclusion of an action. The result was a Professional Conduct Ruling that renders two previous Professional Conduct Rulings obsolete (1988 SKLSPC 6 and 1991 SKLSPC 6). For your reference, please read the ruling and see a more detailed analysis here.

The Law Society has recently developed a Locum Lawyer Registry, available on our website. A Locum Lawyer is a Saskatchewan lawyer, in good standing with the Law Society, who is willing to make themselves available (for appropriate financial compensation) to provide temporary or limited relief, or practice coverage for other Saskatchewan practitioners who may find themselves in need of some assistance. The services a Locum could be engaged to cover are instances such as holidays for solo practitioners, or extended medical leave. Temporary assistance for major projects or with “catch-up” may also be circumstances in which a Locum  would be helpful.

The website registry also features several useful documents to help with the process such as:

  • Information for Lawyers Seeking Locum Work
  • Tips for Hiring a Locum Lawyer
  • The Contract: Potential Issues and Sample Clauses
  • Ethical Issues and Practice Management
  • Professional Liability Insurance
  • Technology Preparedness
  • Locum Lawyer Scenarios


If you are interested in providing such a service to your fellow members or are in need of assistance, please visit the registry.
