Family Law Survey

 

The Minister of the Attorney General along with the Law Society of Upper Canada have decided to explore whether to open the delivery of family law services (not including C.A.S. matters) to paralegals, law students and law clerks.  The Honourable Justice Annemarie E. Bonkalo has been appointed to lead a review.

Her Honour has been asked to look at  the following:
1. Identify the legal services at different stages in a family law matter which, if provided by persons in addition to lawyers, could improve the family justice system by better enabling people to resolve their family law disputes.
2. Identify persons other than lawyers (e.g., paralegals, law clerks and/or law students) who may be capable of providing those family legal services with appropriate safeguards put in place (e.g., education, training).
3. Recommend procedures, mechanisms and/or safeguards (such as education, training, insurance, regulation and/or oversight) to ensure the quality of family legal services provided by alternate legal service providers.

A full review of the mandate of the Honourable Justice Annemarie E. Bonkalo can be found at http://www.attorneygeneral.jus.gov.on.ca/english/family/legal_services_consultation_paper.html
