2013 Annual Membership Renewal

Alberta lawyers will soon find their 2013 annual membership fee invoices and Member Information Update Forms in the mail.

The 2013 annual membership fee is $2,446.50 and is comprised of two components: the active membership fee of $1,848.00 and the Assurance Fund levy of $598.50. All amounts include GST. Each active member must pay the annual active fee as well as the Assurance Fund levy. In addition, all active members must complete and submit the Member Information Update Form.

The 2013 annual membership fee is designed to fund the regulatory operations of the Law Society based on the 2013 business plan and budget that was reviewed and approved by the Benchers. The 2013 business plan and budget can be viewed on the Law Society’s website at

The 2013 Assurance Fund levy remains unchanged from 2011 and 2012. The 2013 active membership fee has increased by $60.00 (or 3.5 per cent) from 2012.

Deadline for payment of fees and submitting the Member Information Update Form is March 15, 2013. Pursuant to Rule 164.1, a $100 penalty will be charged if the Form is not received by March 15, 2013. The Law Society is unable to issue your 2013 membership card until we receive the late penalty payment and the Form in our Calgary office.

Each inactive member must pay the inactive membership fee in the amount of $199.50 (GST inclusive). Inactive members are not required to submit the Member Information Update Form.

Please contact Membership Services at 403-229-4781 or
1-800-661-9003 if more information is required.
