The Law Society of Alberta has extended the deadline of a consultation on an updated model code of conduct to the 30th June.
The amendments to Model Code Rule 6.3 are centred around discrimination and harassment. The draft amendments aim to provide clearer guidance on prohibitions against discrimination, harassment and bullying. This is following feedback from the recent articling survey and the launch of the model Respectful Workplace Policy.
The Society is seeking feedback from a wide range of stakeholders on draft amendments to the Model Code.
