Call ceremonies: COVID-19 update

The provincial health restrictions on the size of gatherings and physical distancing continue to disrupt the ability to conduct call ceremonies. To accommodate those affected by this disruption, the Benchers amended the Law Society Rules to extend the time lawyers who have been called and admitted have to be presented in open court before a judge of the Supreme Court until December 31, 2021.

The Call and Admission Ceremony and presentation to court is an important and longstanding tradition for the legal profession. We recognize that the suspension of the in-person Call and Admission Ceremonies may be a disappointment but we also recognize that ensuring the health and safety of everyone during the current state of emergency must be a priority.
