Law Society of BC Consultation - No Cash and Client identification and Verification Rules

  • February 16, 2018

As you may have seen in the recent Law Society E-brief, the Federation of Law Societies is proposing amendments to the Model “No Cash” and Client Identification and Verification Rules.  The Law Society is reviewing the Federation’s recommendations, and is seeking input from the profession.  We thought the issue – particularly concerning proposed changes to the existing exemptions – might in particular benefit from input from the criminal bar. The consultation is open until March 15. Please send your input to your section chair, Sara Hopkin, as soon as possible.
