The Law Society of British Columbia is considering regulating law firms for more efficient and effective regulation. At their meeting on December 8, 2017, the Benchers* approved the recommendations of the second interim report of the Law Firm Regulation Task Force as amended at the meeting and resolved to initiate them through a pilot project that will be rolled out in 2018. More details of this project will be posted to the Law Society’s website as they become available.
* Benchers establish the Law Society Rules, the Code of Professional Conduct for British Columbia and board policies, including governance policies. The Benchers also oversee the implementation and administration of programs carried out by the Law Society staff.
