The Law Society has made it possible for lawyers to add their pronouns and a title/honorific to their Lawyer Directory profile that is available on the website.

The Lawyer Directory is an important tool for the public and other legal professionals to help people find the names, contact information and practising status of lawyers licensed in BC. The change to the Lawyer Directory will make it easier for public consumers of legal services and legal professionals who are searching for or looking up lawyers using the directory to know which pronouns and/or title/honorific to use when communicating or interacting with them. Since the launch of these changes at the end of April, over 400 lawyers have provided pronouns and over 200 lawyers have provided a title/honorific.
