In response to the City of Calgary’s declaration of a state of emergency, the Law Society of Alberta, Alberta Lawyers Indemnity Association (ALIA) and Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLED) has decided to close their offices until March 30.

“We will re-evaluate the office closure at that point as further information is provided from government and health agencies as well as the city of Calgary,” the law society said in a release. “Our staff will be working remotely to ensure that we continue to address any urgent needs.”

The law society said it will post any further updates to its website as needed.
