Available Dates

If you have a matter before the Tribunal, you may wish to use the information below to help you schedule a proceeding management conference, pre-hearing conference or summary hearing. This information is meant to be used as a guide only– all scheduling requests should be emailed to the Scheduling Coordinator at scheduling@lso.ca.

Proceeding Management Conferences, or PMCs are conducted by a single Tribunal panel member, and are used to manage cases so they move toward hearing in a fair and timely manner. PMCs can result in scheduling a further PMC, scheduling or rescheduling a Pre-Hearing Conference (PHC), scheduling or adjourning a hearing, or directions being given by the panelist. All parties and their counsel (if they are represented) must participate in any scheduled PMC. PMCs can be held in person, by telephone conference, by written submissions, or any combination of these formats. At the end of the PMC, the panelist will note the results of the conference in an endorsement.

Pre-Hearing Conferences, or PHCs, are used to identify, limit, simplify, or attempt to settle some or all of the issues, to identify and limit the evidence and witnesses, to explore the possibility of an agreed statement of fact and to provide general directions to the parties. At the PHC, dates can be set for another PHC, the hearing or a PMC.

A Summary Hearing is a short conduct hearing before a single panel member. Summary hearings deal with various types of less-serious allegations, most frequently failure to respond promptly and completely to the Law Society, practising while suspended and failure to properly maintain books and records. Summary matters reach the hearing stage more quickly than other proceedings, as the hearing date is scheduled when the notice of application is served.
