The latest issue of the Benchers’ Digest is now available. This is a special issue for a few reasons. First of all, it is a new year, and as tradition dictates, we have our President’s Message and Profile on the Vice-President for 2017 front and centre. Secondly, as most of you know, the Law Society has a new Executive Director at its helm as of January. See page 6 for our Q&A with Tim Brown and hear about his vision for the future of the LSS.
Another feature of this issue is our focus on the 110th Anniversary of the Law Society of Saskatchewan! As a special treat, we’ve included a timeline (see page 7) of some major events since the formation of the Society back in 1907. We asked our Benchers to send in some stories and pictures of momentous occasions or interesting tidbits, so keep a watch out for those! For anyone wanting to submit something for posterity, you’ve still got time! We will be featuring any submissions on our blog, Legal Sourcery, over the next few months. Please send your stories to email@example.com.
