During a meeting held on October 15, 2009, the Council of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada received a Final Task Force Report, which was the result of two years of national consultations on issues relating to the criteria for approving common law degrees for the purpose of entry into bar admission programs in Canada. The Final Report has now been referred to law societies for their consideration.
The Task Force Report recommends that effective 2015 the Federation will accept an LLB or JD degree from a Canadian law school as meeting the competency requirements only if the law school academic program includes instruction in ethics and professionalism in a course dedicated to those subjects.
The Report is available at the URL listed above.
