The Law Society of Saskatchewan’s Practice Advisor Program was expanded in 2019 to allow access to the program for any members who need help working through practice management issues, without a complaint. The practice advisor and member work together to address the particular issue at no cost to the member.
In light of COVID-19 prevention methods, more lawyers will likely be working remotely. In turn, members may have novel practice management questions, including concerns about the use of technology, as they transition to working remotely. Accordingly, we encourage any member with practice management questions to contact one of our practice advisors. Their contact information can be found here on our website. The Law Society is also working on further communications, including guidance specifically about technological issues and concerns that may arise.
The practice advisor program is confidential. Unlike in the New Solo/Small Firm program or complaint reviews, the practice advisor will not send a formal report to the Law Society. The Practice Advisor will report general demographic information (urban/rural, small/large firm) and a general overview of the issue. The Law Society will use this information to guide potential Law Society communications, programs, or continuing professional development in the future.
