Would you like to be considered for Law Society appointments?

The Law Society makes appointments to a variety of boards, commissions and agencies and is seeking volunteers interested in serving as appointees.

While a few of these outside bodies require that the Law Society appointee be a Bencher, most do not, which means the Society looks to the profession to find volunteers and build a pool of prospective candidates.

Periodically, the Law Society seeks expressions of interest from the profession so as to expand the pool and to confirm that those who have previously expressed interest remain available for appointment.

Within the next 12 months, the Law Society will consider appointments to the following bodies:

  • Vancouver Building Permit Board of Appeal
  • Continuing Legal Education Society (board of directors)
  • Law Foundation (board of governors)
  • BC Medical Services Foundation (board of directors)
  • Vancouver International Airport Authority (board of directors).

These appointments offer a lawyer the opportunity to participate more fully in the work of the profession and the community and to demonstrate the commitment of the profession to public service. If you would like to be considered, please send your curriculum vitae and a note about which appointments interest you, by mail or email to:
