Stuart Cameron, who has spent 20 years working in the offices of the Law Society of British Columbia has been named the Supreme Court of B.C.’s new district registrar, effective Jan. 31.
“I am sure that everyone will agree he will do an excellent job and he came highly recommended by the law society,” said outgoing LSBC president Glen Ridgway, who worked with Cameron over the past year.
During his career at the LSBC offices, Cameron fulfilled a number of roles. Ridgway said he felt Cameron’s largest contribution in recent years has been his “public outreach” in explaining the role of the law society. Cameron has acted as law society spokesman since 2009 on issues related to discipline and investigation.
From 1990 to 2004, he was a staff lawyer with the LSBC’s insurance fund and responsible for the defense and management of errors and omissions claims made against B.C. lawyers. Cameron also assumed the role of director of professional regulation for the law society in 2004. Over than past year, he took on the role of director of investigations and litigation counsel.
A media relations officer for the LSBC said no replacement had been named to immediately replace Cameron.
