Steering Committee

For the consultation phase of the CBA’s Legal Futures Initiative, the Steering Committee is inviting broad-based comments from all stakeholders. It has also narrowed the focus in a few areas that each hold a key piece of the Futures puzzle: ethics, education and business. Will a new regulatory environment be necessary, and how will the profession work within it? As we speak, legal education is under fire for concentrating on theory at the expense of practice. And many observers agree that new business models will be mandatory. Will a new regulatory environment be necessary, and how will the profession work within it? What are the options, have they been seen to work, and which are best suited to the Canadian legal climate?

The Steering Committee has also created teams, each led by a distinguished member of the Canadian legal profession with demonstrated leadership, knowledge and expertise in the issues, and made up of experts from across the country. Each team is expected to provide their recommendations by the end of February, 2014.
