Request for input on Criminal Standard

The Professional Standards (Criminal) Committee is seeking input from the membership on its first Standard: Withdrawal of Counsel.

This Standard specifies the circumstances under which a lawyer must withdraw from a case, but also provides some guidance to lawyers in order to assist them in determining whether good cause exists, the reasonableness of the notice required, and the expectations of the lawyer withdrawing from a case as well as the successor lawyer.

Please submit comments and suggestions pertaining to this new Standard to info@lians.ca by October 9th, 2015. You can review the proposed Standard below as a PDF or a Word document:
