Law Society Of Ontario Supervision Agreement

Remote monitoring: Lawyers and paralegal candidates who work remotely on the basis of COVID-19 must maintain interaction with their sponsor or supervisor. Applicants are encouraged to discuss with their sponsors and superiors how best to maintain oversight while working in a remote legal environment. Articling directors can apply to the Law Society of articling@lso.ca and paralegal students should contact the programme coordinator at their university. The Supervisor, Security Services collaborates with the Senior Director, Facilities & Planning to create a safe environment for employees, bankers, appointed jurors, other office holders, students, contractors and guests of the Law Society. Third, due to the requirement for lawyers and paralegal applicants to continue to interact with their sponsors and superiors, even if they are working remotely in the context of the public health crisis, the LSO proposes ways to meet this requirement, for example. B through frequent emails, phone calls or video chats. The LSO also invites these paralegal lawyers and candidates to discuss with their sponsors and supervisors the best possible arrangements for continuous monitoring during work from home. Changes have been made with respect to support agreements, remote monitoring, and the discount process: lawyers can supervise licensing candidates who have already completed their experience training program such as articles or an LPP/PPD internship, but who have not yet been appointed to the bar. . . .
