2024 Practice Fee Set
The Law Society of Alberta has set the 2024 practice fee at $2,640 per active lawyer and the part-time membership fee will be $1,320. These fees represent an increase of $150 and $75, respectively.
Like all organizations, the Law Society continues to face inflationary pressure on operating costs. We continue to focus our expenditures toward advancing the strategic goals of the Law Society and regulating in the public interest.
Invoices for 2024 practice fees will become available in February 2024. Lawyers can pay their fee in one payment or in two instalments. This gives lawyers more flexibility around fee payment if they want to spread their financial obligations through the year rather than paying one lump sum.
If lawyers opt to make instalment payments, the first payment is due on or before March 15, 2024, with the second payment due by Sept. 15, 2024. There will be an additional $50 administrative charge on the March 15 deadline for lawyers who opt to pay their fees in instalments.
Lawyers who pay the fee in one lump sum must do so by March 15, 2024.
