    • Access to justice;
    • The practice of law by advocates;
    • Procedural matters of broad application;
    • The right to counsel;
    • The independence of the Bar;
    • The administration of justice; or
    • An issue of law that is of importance to the proper representation of parties before courts or tribunals.
  • Does The Advocates’ Society have the staff time and resources required to undertake the project.
  • Have or will other legal organizations take a position.
  • Whether the will issue have a beneficial impact on broad members of the legal system.
  • Are there any reputational risks, costs exposures, or like concerns?
