The Committee was established by a 1992 amendment to the Law Society Act. Its function is to determine whether plaintiffs in class proceedings should receive financial support from the Class Proceedings Fund and to determine the amount of such support. Written reasons for decisions are rarely issued. The Committee occasionally issues Practice Directions.
