Many folks state that the lawyers, as part of the BAR, are accountable to the Queen. If they are, why did they remove the oath of allegiance to the Queen in 1993 (in B.C.)? Apparently on the motion of only ONE individual this rather major change was instituted (Benchers minutes link below).

Section 2-51 of the Law Society of British Columbia Rules requires any lawyer who is called to the Bar of British Columbia and admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court to take a barristers’ and solicitors’ oath in a form approved by the Benchers.  The current form was adopted by the Benchers in April 1993 in response to a proposal to eliminate the requirement to swear an oath of allegiance to the Queen.  Click for a copy of the Benchers’ minutes and the current Barristers’ and Solicitors’ Oath.

If you check out other oaths, most have “allegiance to the Queen” as part of the oath to hold office.

FYI NOTE: the  various BAR  Law Societies are private, unregulated associations that effectively write, interpret, prosecute (and punish) all the laws.
