LIANS’ Insurance Levy for 2019-2020

The 2019-2020 LIANS Insurance Levy was approved by LIANS’ Board of Directors on April 23, 2019.

The net levy for the policy year commencing July 1, 2019 is $1,995 for each practising private practitioner, $998 for Nova Scotia Legal Aid lawyers and $350 for Nova Scotia government lawyers. These amounts are unchanged from last year and, in the case of private practitioners and legal aid lawyers, remains below the true cost of the insurance.
