I have the privilege to request your intervention in the Law Society of Ontario’s current conduct of its licensing examinations. Your intervention is requested pursuant to sub-section 5(c) of the Ministry of the General Act and sub-section 13(1) of the Law Society Act.
Judicial visits of the Canadian prison system allow judges to witness firsthand the conditions in which Canadian inmates live.
Visitors have the right to supervise and correct the affairs of a charitable corporation. The Law Society of Ontario had visitors mentioned in its charter, but this mention was removed. Does the visitor still exist? If so, what might that mean for the profession?
Visitors have all the rights of an executive, a legislator, and a judge. The three branches of government combine in a single person. If this law applies to prisons, judges can exert their powers as judges and as visitors to correct abuses in the prison system. This law then supplies a novel set of remedies to situations not covered by private nor public law.
