Alberta Lawyers' Assistance Society

About Us

Our Board

Assist is governed by an elected board of directors. The Law Society of Alberta recommends one Bencher to serve as a Director of Assist. Assist’s Bylaws enable the Board to add a director mid-year which is how a new Bencher is added to the Assist Board. The Law Society Bencher then stands for re-election at subsequent annual general meetings.
