Lawyer Program Available: Locum Connect
The Law Society of Alberta offers Locum Connect as a free service for lawyers looking for, or offering, work as a locum. The program connects lawyers with potential employers from across Alberta.
Law Firms and Organizations
Employers can search our list of locum candidates available for work, or register a new opportunity on behalf of their firm/organization. They can craft the terms of a locum engagement to reflect the needs and requirements of the position they are looking to fill.
A locum can benefit your practice by:
- providing coverage on short-notice;
- handling specific files or projects;
- alleviating workloads during an unexpected surge in business; or
- allowing for short-term contracts when hiring full-time is not feasible.
Lawyers can register as a locum candidate to serve as a short-term employee or independent contractor, full-time or part-time, and can specify their preference for working on-site or remotely. They can browse the locum opportunity listing and inquire about an opportunity to learn more or apply for a position.
Please note: The Law Society does not vet candidates, firms or organizations. As well, the Law Society does not participate in any of the subsequent negotiations of the terms of engagement.
