This is a final reminder to participate in the Law Society’s member consultation on the regulation of legal organizations (“entities”) before the consultation closes this Thursday, June 30th.  To take part, please visit www.lawsocietylistens.ca where you can learn more about the consultation topics and answer the survey questions.  There are three short sets of survey questions in total.

You will first have to register on the top right-hand corner of the site.  It may take a few moments to receive your registration link via email.  Once you have registered, you can submit general questions and written submissions in the “Starting the Dialogue” window and answer the specific survey questions about “Entity Regulation” and “Compliance-based Entity Regulation” by visiting those sections of the website.   You can also provide your input in a very preliminary discussion about “Alternative Business Structures.”

We look forward to hearing from you.
