Paralegal Practice Management Topics

These resources have been developed to assist paralegals with understanding their obligations under the Paralegal Rules of Conduct and the Law Society's By-Laws, as well as with ensuring proper practice management. However, subject to any legal, by-law, or Paralegal Rules requirements, these resources are not intended to replace a paralegal's professional judgment. Each practice management issue must be assessed in the context of the paralegal's own legal services practice.

Amended Paralegal Rules and Paralegal Professional Conduct Guidelines are in effect October 1, 2014. The resources below have been updated to reflect these amendments. Additional resources to assist paralegals with understanding and complying with the amended Paralegal Rules and Paralegal Guidelines are available here.
