Admissions and Education
One of the primary regulatory responsibilities of the Law Society is protection of the public by ensuring that only those qualified to practice are admitted to the profession. The Admissions & Education Committee is the gatekeeper for the legal profession in Saskatchewan. The Committee's responsibilities are to establish Rules to:
- ensure that new members have both the requisite integrity and appropriate competency to practice law by administering Admission requirements, the Bar Admissions course (CPLED) and articling
- regulate readmission of those that have left the practice of law
- regulate interprovincial mobility and transfers
- oversee the delivery of continuing professional development
The Admissions & Education Committee is assisted by the Executive Director, the Director of Admissions & Education and the Director of Bar Admissions. The administration staff at the Law Society is responsible for ensuring compliance with the policies.
