Private Practice Re-Entry Requirement

On April 24, 2008, Convocation approved a new private practicere-entry requirement for lawyers re-entering private practice.

The Law Society requires lawyers who are returning to private practice as sole practitioners, or in a firm of five or fewer lawyers,after an absence of 48 months over the past five years, to undergo a practice management review within 12 months of establishing their practice.

Lawyers returning to private practice will receive a package of materials designed to assist them in establishing their practices. The package includes educational tools and guides based on the Practice Management Guidelines and Lawyer Bookkeeping Guide
