One of the key initiatives identified for the Professional Standards Committee in 2018 was to review the Practice Advisor program and determine whether there was room for improvement. Among the potential changes, the PSC considered whether the program should be expanded to be made available to all members who may have practice management questions. Ultimately the Committee determined that this would reinforce the Law Society’s shift toward proactive regulation, by dealing with potential practice management issues before they occur.
As such, the Law Society of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce that our Practice Advisor Program is now available for any members who need help working through practice management issues. Under this program, the practice advisor and member will work together to address the particular issue at no cost to the member.
The practice advisor program is meant to be confidential. Unlike in the New Solo/Small Firm program or complaint reviews, the practice advisor will not send a formal report to the Law Society. The Practice Advisor will report general demographic information (urban/rural, small/large firm) and a general overview of the issue. This information will be used to guide potential Law Society programs or continuing professional development in the future.
