New Guidelines Proposed For Res. School Lawyers

Thursday, February 15, 2007 at 15:02



A lawyer for the Canadian Bar Association says the group is looking at imposing a set of guidelines on how lawyers should deal with residential school survivors.


Chris Devlin says the Bar wants to make sure survivors aren’t re-victimized by a legal process that’s supposed to help them.


He says ethical standards are being drawn up that could be regulated by law societies in each province.


Devlin says the issue will be discussed at the Bar’s mid-winter meeting this weekend.
