Raj Anand, a senior civil litigation and human rights partner at WeirFoulds, and a bencher of the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC), is featured in the article “LSUC adopts entity regulation recommendations,” published in Law Times on May 30, 2016.
The article addresses the LSUC’s adoption of two recommendations laid out in a report that tackled how the Law Society can regulate entities that provide legal services.
Raj serves on the task force behind the recommendations. He says, “This isn’t regulation for regulation’s sake. The goal is practical solutions…. There is no desire to overregulate. The desire is to raise standards and to do it in the way that’s the least burdensome while at the same time achieves the goals.”
Raj is currently serving his third term as a bencher. A former Chief Commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission, he recently served as Constitutional Litigator-in-Residence at the David Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law.
