Special Compensation Fund Committee

The Special Compensation Fund Committee considers claims for compensation arising from the alleged misappropriation or wrongful conversion of trust funds by a BC lawyer acting in that capacity. See Law Society Rules 3-28 to 3-42.

(Note that claims made on or after May 1, 2004 are covered by Trust Protection Coverage and managed by the Lawyers Insurance Fund. The Special Compensation Fund continues to exist and is responsible for resolving claims made or discovered prior to adoption of the Trust Protection Coverage).
