2018 is an election year for Benchers of the Law Society of Saskatchewan.
Please visit our Bencher Election 2018 page for two separate Nomination forms: one for nomination of a Bencher (based on geographical district) and one for nomination of a New Lawyer Bencher (for lawyers within 10 years of being called to the Bar). On the site, you will also find important dates, information about the election process and an overview of what prospective candidates can expect from their time serving as a Bencher.
