The Law Society relies on the excellent work of our many volunteers, including our Benchers, lawyers and others from the legal community.
Volunteers serve as members of committees, task forces and working groups, as guest instructors, lecturers and authors, as practice reviewers, practice supervisors and conduct reviewers and as event panelists and advisors on special projects.
