The Law Society’s Second Annual Convention was held on June 24th and 25th, 1937, at the Hotel Saskatchewan, Canada’s 14th Grand Railway Hotel, then in its tenth year of operation.
One of the major issues discussed at the convention was that of encroachments on legal practice by non-lawyers, including Justices of the Peace, Process Issuers, Commissioners for Oaths, conveyancers, Trust Companies, Bank Managers, disbarred or suspended barristers and solicitors, the Bureau of Child Protection, and other government departments.
The total number of members in active practice at the time of the convention was 494. Check out the room prices!
