The Very Model of a Modern Law Society
AbstractAt time in which the nature of self-governing professions, particularly the legal profession, is the subject of considerable public and legislative concern, it is increasingly important that decisive statement of the present situation be made. Mr. Hurlburt explains the organization and functions of the Alberta Law Society, and while mentioning possible areas for improvement, stresses that the present system is operating substantially to the benefit of the general public. Further, he concludes that the existing organization, judging from its past accomplishments, is best equipped to meet the challenges that will face the profession, and the society, in the coming years.
