Re-Envisioning Regulation: “Canadian Lawyers in the 21st Century”


  • Alice Woolley Assistant Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Calgary.



The articles in this issue represent the legacy of the Law Society of Alberta’s 100th Anniversary Conference, held in Edmonton, 26-27 October 2007. The conference was conceived by the Law Society of Alberta (LSA) in the belief that its centenary presented the occasion not only for celebration of the profession’s 100-year history in Alberta, but also for reflection on its future. The conference would be the vehicle for the generation and dissemination of serious thinking about what it means to be a member of the Canadian legal profession today and in the years to come. Hence the conference title which, after much casting about for a clever phrase, was chosen for its descriptive precision: Canadian Lawyers in the 21st Century.
