New Trust Safety Webpages
Last year, the Law Society implemented amended Rules regarding the approval and management of trust accounts by Alberta lawyers. The new Rules were realigned to better suit the lifecycle of a trust account and incorporate modern practices and technologies used by law firms in Alberta.
The Trust Safety section of our website has now been realigned to match the lifecycle of a trust account as well. This change will make it easier for Responsible Lawyers (RLs) to navigate their accountabilities at every stage of trust account management, from getting approval as an RL to annual reporting to trust account closure.
