Posted: 08/19/2014

interior-new-rulesOn Sept. 8, the Law Society is offering a webcast program for lawyers and another for paralegals on the amended rules of conduct, which come into effect Oct. 1.

Most amendments are minor, however some changes are more substantive and introduce new standards.

The webcasts are offered at no charge to ensure that all members can access important information on these rule changes.

The On-Demand Webcasts will be available to order from the CPD website following the live program date.

Convocation amended the lawyers’ Rules of Professional Conduct and the Paralegal Rules of Conduct to implement the Federation of Law Societies of Canada’s Model Code of Professional Conduct.

The Paralegal Professional Conduct Guidelines were also amended.
