Meeting of Convocation
The Law Society’s Board of Directors (Convocation) met by video conference to address time-sensitive administrative matters. Treasurer Malcolm Mercer opened the meeting by extending deepest condolences on behalf of Convocation and members of the legal professions in Ontario, following the tragic losses experienced in Nova Scotia.
Convocation also received a report from CEO Diana Miles on the measures taken by the Law Society in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Since the onset of the crisis in early March, the Law Society has taken significant action to support the professions, the public and the ongoing administration of justice, as well as to ensure the continuation of Law Society operations in a remote work environment.
