Time flies when you are having fun. For those of us in Alberta anticipating changes to court rules on November 1, 2010, time has flown quickly indeed.
I have spent quite a bit of time lately helping with the final checks of my firm’s court precedents collection. Alberta’s Rules are significanly changing and so the form of documents that will be filed on and after November 1, 2010 also requires change. Thankfully, there are several internet delivered tools to assist practitioners with things like standard court forms.
Those with ongoing litigation in Alberta should read Part 15:
Part 15: Transitional Provisions And Coming Into Force
What this Part is about: This Part describes what happens to legal proceedings that are going on when the new rules come into effect. The Part is intended to ensure a smooth transition from the former rules to these rules.
