Building trust competency

The Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society has conducted a review of its current trust account assessment. This assessment is written by lawyers wishing to open a trust account. The review has resulted in the creation of a list of competencies and a new trust assessment that tests lawyers’ knowledge of the trust regulations as well as their ability to apply the regulations to a simulated scenario.

The Society will begin administering the new examination immediately. For further information, see the Trust accounts page of our website or contact Erica Green, Officer, Education & Credentials.
