Bar admission case files
Subseries · 1830-1987, predominant 1830-1902
Part of Supreme Court of Nova Scotia fonds

Sub-series forms part of Case files series and consists of documents presented before the Prothonotary of the Supreme Court at Halifax to demonstrate qualification for admission to the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society and thus eligibility to practice law in Nova Scotia. The years from 1830 to 1902 are well represented as it appears the documents were maintained as a unit separate from the general civil case files. With the exception of a few files from 1946, grouped together in the general civil case files, subsequent admissions were not stored separately and are found scattered among the general civil case files. In 1986 the practice of separating the files resumed. Early files contain articles of clerkship in which a prospective barrister was in effect apprenticed to a member of the bar, certificates of good character, certifications of competency and legal knowledge and admission documents. Modern files contain a brief document indicating the applicant's qualifications, including information on where they have articled and their legal education, and an indication that fees have been paid and certificates of moral character have been filed with the Society. Most files also contain a brief biography used to introduce the applicant at the Bar Admission ceremony. Records related to disciplinary matters, such as complaints or even disbarment, were filed with the Bar Admission case file.

Barristers' and other rolls
Subseries · 1781-2010
Part of Supreme Court of Nova Scotia fonds

The subseries consists of 16 rolls recording the admission of individuals to the Bar of Nova Scotia and thus to the legal profession within the province. Bar Admission was, and continues to be, through an application to the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia made at a sitting of the Court. Upon review of qualification and standing, individuals seeking admission to the Bar were invited by the judge to sign the Roll. The information content of the Rolls is limited to a date and signature of the newly admitted lawyer. The separate legal professional streams of barrister, solicitors, and attorneys were recognised until 1892 through separate admissions, and sometimes separate rolls, After 1892 all admissions have been as Barristers. In 1899 membership in the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society became a condition for practising law in the Province making the Roll both a document recording admission to the Bar and also admission to the Society. While the earlier "Rolls" are large format documents on a single sheet of paper, the 20th century documents are multiple sheets attached to each other or bound into a book-like "Roll" or register

Part of Supreme Court of Nova Scotia fonds

Series forms part of the Official record books series of the Supreme Court at Halifax sub-fonds and consists of registers used by the Supreme Court at Halifax to index case numbers by plaintiff and defendant as they were assigned. The indexing is chronological and then alphabetical by the first letter of a party's last name. Prior to the start of case numbering in 1861 these registers were used as indexes to the cause books which recorded the commencement of cases. Some subsequent index volumes record case number as well as the page number reference to the cause book. Prior to 1861 the indexes refer only to cause book page numbers. The registers are independent of the cause books for which they act as indexes and have been divided by years for convenience. Indeed, book 14 starts with the notation, "new millennium - new book." Overlapping time periods probably indicate that some volumes were copied to replace others which due to use needed replacement.
In 1928 the court administration office changed to an index card system. Subsequent to 1952 the cards were photographically copied into index books which were microfilmed by the NS Archives in the period 2011 to 2013.
