The Law Society announced this week that, with the assistance of the Continuing Legal Education Society of British Columbia, it has now released the 2010 Practice Checklists Manual, available in the Practice Support section of the Law Society’s website in both Word and PDF. The Practice Checklists Manual has been a leading resource for BC lawyers in several key practice areas since the first edition was published in 1984. The Law Society states in its news release of July 15 that “the publication moved online nine years ago and has proved very popular, with lawyers downloading 60,000 individual checklists in 2009.”
- Client Identification & Verification
- Corporate & Commercial
- Real Estate
- Wills & Estates
- Human Rights
A non-exhaustive overview of the highlights of what’s new in the checklists is also available and includes updates on HST, Corporate & Commercial, Criminal, Family, Litigation, and Wills & Estates categories.
The Law Society also invites suggestions on how to improve the content and format of these checklists by contacting Barbara Buchanan, Practice Advisor.
