New Regulations to Govern Paralegal Studies Grads

The new regulations will govern paralegal studies graduates in Toronto. Licensing for paralegals will be somewhat like a bar exam, according to Bernie Aron, co-ordinator of Humber College's paralegal studies program.

Under new Access to Justice Act legislation, paralegals in Ontario will be regulated by the Law Society of Upper Canada. For the first time in Canadian history, they will be required to receive training, carry liability insurance and report to a public body that can investigate complaints. The regulation comes into force May 1, just in time to regulate the class of 2007.
