Call Ceremonies: Update, May 2022

With the lifting of restrictions on public gatherings, the Law Society resumed in-person call ceremonies beginning in May 2022. Since the last ceremony over two years ago, there had been over 1,900 licensing candidates eligible to attend a call ceremony, and it is taking some time to accommodate all candidates who wish to attend an in-person ceremony. Some may prefer to take advantage of a rule change adopted as part of the Law Society’s pandemic response that makes attendance at a call ceremony optional, and arrangements will be made to provide those candidates with a call and admission certificate. We are contacting candidates chronologically, beginning with those who have been eligible since late 2019. It will take some time to accommodate all candidates who are interested in attending an in-person ceremony, and we ask that candidates wait for the Law Society to contact them. We will make every effort to reach candidates as early as we can. For further information, please contact
