About the Executive

The Executive manages and conducts the affairs of the Society.

The Executive is composed of one non lawyer, appointed by the Commissioner for a term of three years.  There are also at least four other Executive members.  All of these are lawyers who have been approved to practice in, and live in the NWT. They are elected by all the lawyers who practice in the NWT.

Included in the Executive are the President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. The offices of Secretary and Treasurer may be held by the same person.

The Executive appoints an Executive Director, who is also called Deputy Secretary or Deputy Secretary-Treasurer. The Executive Director is responsible for managing the Law Society office.  The Executive Directors is an ex officio member of the Executive.

Every lawyer who lives in the NWT and who is approved to practice law in the NWT can be nominated for a position on the Executive.
