Introduction and Objectives

In the Oct. 1, 2021 Board Meeting, the Benchers approved amendments to the Rules of the Law Society of Alberta regarding the approval and management of trust accounts by Alberta lawyers. The amended rules go into effect on Jan. 1, 2022. Changes to this module reflecting these rule changes are underway and will be published as soon as possible. Please use the information provided at your own discretion as some of the content in this module is outdated and rule references are incorrect. 

The objectives of the Trust Safety Filings and Other Rules Module are:

  1. To learn the Rules that underpin the Trust Safety Program.
  2. To learn the requirements for filing reports with the Law Society.
  3. To learn the requirements relating to notices of bankruptcy and writs of execution and the Law Society’s audit program.

Although we aim to present a comprehensive module, this module is not exhaustive. This module is not a substitute for exercising professional judgment and does not constitute legal advice.
