The Law Society of BC posted its 2009 Annual Review: Regulating Lawyers in the Public Interest for 125 Years and its audited Financial Statements for 2009 on its website last week. This year, the Annual Review is distributed in electronic form for the stated dual purpose of saving costs and reducing the society’s environmental footprint. The Financial Statements will continue to be mailed to all BC lawyers, as the Law Society Rules stipulate.
In addition to marking the Law Society’s 125th anniversary, 2009 was the first full year of implementation of its three-year Strategic Plan. The Annual Review reports on the Plan’s progress and also outlines results from the second full year of Key Performance Measures for the Society’s core operations.
