Attending Court

March 27, 2020

A reminder to lawyers, students and legal support staff that anyone who has recently returned from travel or are feeling sick are absolutely not to attend court, their offices or any other setting outside of what’s mandated by Alberta Health Services and the Government of Alberta. Alberta Health Services released new information this week on who should be self-isolating and for how long.

To protect the health and safety of Albertans, law enforcement agencies now have full authority to enforce public health orders and issue fines for violations. View more information on enforcement of these orders here.

The Law Society would like to remind lawyers of their professional obligations, with one of those professional obligations being to comply with the mandatory self-isolation requirements if they fall into one of the above categories.
