2011 Benchers retreat
The Benchers held their 2011 policy retreat last June in Whistler. The theme of this year’s event was “The Future of Legal Regulation in British Columbia.”
The face of legal regulation in the common law world has changed considerably in the last 20 years. The Benchers and guests heard different perspectives from other jurisdictions and professions and debated several options for the future regulation of the legal profession in BC.
As part of good governance, there is value in the Law Society engaging in philosophical discussion as to how the public might be best served.
