On May 18th, the Law Society is presenting the following noon hour webinar (qualifies for 1 ethics CPD hour) free of charge!
The Law Societies of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are examining a spectrum of regulatory tools that includes entity regulation, proactive compliance-based regulation and alternative business structures to determine which, if any, might be effective in our jurisdictions. A discussion paper and accompanying abstract were co-authored by representatives of each of these law societies to explore and assess these new regulatory approaches being used around the world in various forms.
The Law Society is commencing member consultation in April to provide members with the opportunity to offer their input on how regulation might change in the Prairies. This webinar will further the conversation, enabling members to hear from Benchers of the Law Society of Saskatchewan and pose questions about the contemplated changes. The webinar will be presented by Benchers Gerald Tegart, Q.C. and Brenda Hildebrandt Q.C. Gerald and Brenda are the Law Society of Saskatchewan Bencher representatives on the Prairie Law Societies Task Force, which will review the consultation results and develop recommendations respecting regulatory changes for the Benchers of all three law societies to consider.
