The Commercial List Users’ Committee (“CLUC”) is currently accepting nominations to serve a three year term beginning in Fall 2019.
CLUC meets regularly to consider improvements to the organization and operation of the Commercial List and, from time to time, if/as appropriate, to make recommendations to the Regional Senior Justice and the Chief Justice in that regard.
CLUC is comprised of members of the Judiciary who sit on the Commercial List from time to time, practitioners who are familiar with the operation of the Commercial List and representatives of Courts Administration from the Commercial List Office.
Currently there are 20 members of CLUC, plus the Judges/Registrars and a representative of the Ministry of the Attorney General. That number could evolve. Members have and will continue to be drawn from the Commercial List stakeholder community and may be drawn from recommendations made by associations, including:
- The Advocates’ Society
- Ontario Bar Association (Civil Litigation Section)
- Ontario Bar Association (Insolvency Law Section)
- Ontario Bar Association (Franchise Law Section)
- Toronto Lawyers’ Association
- Ontario Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Professionals
- Insolvency Institute of Canada
Up to 10 positions on CLUC may be available for the coming term.
Those interested in applying to sit on CLUC are encouraged to submit a written application by way of brief letter (e.g. 1-2 pages) setting out your interest, qualifications, and interaction with the Commercial List. It is not necessary to submit a CV or resume.
In selecting members, the Nominations Committee and CLUC will consider applicants’ experience in matters before the Commercial List, and leadership in and contributions to the legal community. CLUC seeks to be representative of the legal profession, and to have a diversity of voices at the table. We encourage members of all equity-seeking groups, and lawyers with ten years of call or fewer, to apply.
If interested, please forward your application on or before March 21, 2019, to the Secretary of CLUC:
