Liaison Committees

Mandate

The Court Liaison Committees support the Executive Director in ensuring effective liaison with the court.

Responsibilities

These joint committees provide a means for ongoing liaison and communication between the Courts of Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society about matters of mutual concern and interest. 

There are three main tasks for the Committees:

  • to identify practice and policy issues of mutual concern and interest;
  • to recommend means for addressing these issues; and
  • to communicate the results of this process to the Court and to the Society for further communication to the profession or elsewhere.
