Mandatory minimum compensation for experiential training for lawyer licensing candidates

January 14, 2022

Share your view about mandatory minimum compensation for experiential training for lawyer licensing candidates.

In December 2021, the Law Society of Ontario’s Board of Directors (Convocation) invited all those interested to share their views about mandatory minimum compensation for experiential training for lawyer licensing candidates.

Views can be shared by emailing PolicyConsultation@LSO.ca by Tuesday March 15, 2022.

Background: In December 2018, Convocation approved enhancements to the experiential training component of the lawyer licensing process which, when implemented, would require mandatory minimum compensation.

A subsequent report to Convocation in November 2021, recommended that the Law Society adopt a best practices approach to compensation which encourages rather than requires that all experiential training placements be paid a mandatory minimum compensation.

Please note that emails received on this matter will be provided to members of Convocation for review and may be reproduced by the Law Society, with attribution.

This matter is expected to be addressed at the April 28 meeting of Convocation.
