Special General Meeting reset for May 22

The Law Society Special General Meeting - adjourned from April 12 because of overflow crowds in several locations - has been reset for May 22, beginning at 1:30 p.m. The Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre will be the main site, and the meeting will join other sites across B.C. by audioconference.

Lawyers should consult the April 26 Notice of Special General Meeting for full details of the meeting, including audioconference locations. The Society is requesting that lawyers send back an email RSVP to assist in registration and set-up at the meeting (see Notice for details of where to send your RSVP). Registration will be available early on the day of the meeting in those sites where highest turnout is expected and will remain open at all sites throughout the meeting

Over 2,000 lawyers attended the meeting on April 12, a record number and far more than the Vancouver hotels and a number of other sites could accommodate. Because the meeting could not be adjourned to a specific date, the Law Society is providing members with at least 21 days advance notice of the meeting.

The Special General Meeting was convened by the Benchers by a petition of members under the Law Society Rules.
