Legal Aid Alberta (LAA) is establishing a Roster Representation Committee as part of ongoing efforts to continually improve the way the organization works with its Roster Lawyer partners.
The committee will be composed of active LAA Roster lawyers and will serve as an advisory body to help LAA with its efforts to continually improve its services to Albertans, and to increase and improve efficiency in the collaboration between LAA and its Roster Lawyer partners. The committee will provide non-binding strategic advice to LAA Management on matters, initiatives, programs, policies, and/or procedures referred to it, especially on items of direct relevance to the roster but also on broader matters where the input of Roster Lawyers would be valuable. Initially, it is anticipated that the Committee will meet quarterly but the frequency may vary depending on the number, nature and/or complexity of agenda topics.
