This year, the Law Society of Saskatchewan saw an unprecedented interest in members seeking to be elected to the office of Bencher. This level of interest also generates a significant level of competition for a limited number of positions. As a result, many good candidates were unsuccessful. It is important that every member participates in the regulation of the legal profession. Letting your name stand for Bencher is in itself an important contribution and we thank all of the candidates for their interest and dedication.
