Trust Review Task Force

The governing board of the Law Society has established a Trust Review Task Force to consider recommendations of the Cullen Commission of Inquiry into Money Laundering regarding the handling of trust funds and management of trust accounts by lawyers. As part of its mandate, the task force will assess the current trust accounting rules and related requirements, such as client identification and verification, against the objectives of those rules and any concerns expressed about the rules and their enforcement.

The terms of reference provide that the membership of the task force should include at least four lawyers who are not Benchers, at least two of whom should be lawyers from small firms. Lawyers interested in volunteering should complete the appointments online form and specifically mention the task force.
