Law Society Act: Proposed Regulation
Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Law Society Act
Summary of Proposal:
This regulation governs hearings before the Hearing and Appeal Divisions of the Law Society Tribunal. There are two proposed changes to the processes of the Hearing Division, that have been approved by the governing board of the Law Society (ie. Convocation):
1. Eliminate the requirement for the same members who will hear the merits of the proceeding (in which a motion is brought), for certain types of motions, to also hear the motion.
2. Allow a single member panel, rather than a three-member panel, to exclude the public and/or witnesses from all or part of a hearing.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
There are no administrative costs anticipated.
