Changes in Practice Status
For a temporary leave of absence, you must remain on exemption for at least 30 days. If you apply for exemption partway into a leave, you can apply for a refund of up to 30 days of premium.
We recommend that judges consider applying for additional Run-Off limit protection beyond this standard Run-Off Coverage. Additional Run-Off Coverage limits of $500,000 per CLAIM/$500,000 in the aggregate, and $1 million per CLAIM/$2 million in the aggregate, are available. For further details, refer to the “Insurance matters: Retired lawyers, estate trustees, judges, in-house counsel, government lawyers and others no longer in private practice” booklet.
If you wish to be provided with a no-obligation estimate, please complete and submit an Application to Increase Run-Off Coverage.

I’ve advised the Law Society in writing of my upcoming change in status. Do I need to let LAWPRO know as well?
LAWPRO and the LSO maintain completely separate information databases and, in keeping with their respective mandates, generally do not share information that lawyers may consider confidential or proprietary.
