The Law Reform Commission will hold one hour meetings with interested firms and practitioners to discuss its Consultation Report on Contributory Fault & Apportionment Among Wrongdoers and to seek input on its consultation questions. This activity is approved by the Law Society of Saskatchewan and qualifies for 1 CPD hour. Meetings can be scheduled until January 31, 2021. To schedule a meeting, please contact Leah Howie, Director of the Law Reform Commission.
You are also requested to complete the consultation survey. The Consultation Report focuses primarily on sections 2 and 3 of The Contributory Negligence Act, and asks questions related to the scope of the applicability of the defense of contributory negligence, and the scope of the rule allowing wrongdoers to seek contribution from other concurrent wrongdoers.
Leah will be discussing the Consultation Report in a CPD webinar scheduled for December 1, 2020 at 12:00 PM.
NOTE: The consultation period has been extended to February 28, 2021.
