Family Law Rights of Appearance Pilot Project

December 14, 2021

Effective January 17, 2022, the Law Society, in partnership with the Superior Court of Justice and the Ontario Court of Justice, is launching a pilot project which will allow eligible lawyer licensing candidates (including candidates completing their work placements as part of an integrated practice curriculum program at Lakehead or Ryerson) to attend to an increased number of matters related to family law cases without first needing permission of the court pursuant to rule 4(1)(c) of the Family Law Rules.

More information is available on the Rights of Appearance and Rights of Appearance for Law Students pages.
