April 4, 2008

The BC Supreme Court proposes to establish a Commercial Division in the Vancouver Westminster Judicial District for the management and hearing of applications involving issues of commercial law. This will be a pilot project to assess the utility of the Division.

The court has prepared a draft practice direction (PDF) explaining the proposed Commercial Division’s practice and procedure.

The BC Supreme Court invites members of the profession to attend a meeting on April 14 at 4:15 pm in courtroom 55 of the Vancouver Law Courts to discuss the proposal and the draft practice direction.
