Dialogue on Licensing

On December 10, 2018, the Law Society of Ontario’s governing body approved the Current Model with Enhancements option for lawyer licensing. This model retains articling and the Law Practice Program/Programme de Pratique du droit (LPP/PPD), with significant enhancements.

Enhancements include paid articling and LPP/PDD work placements in accordance with Law Society requirements, with limited exceptions. Measurements, audits, or other forms of monitoring will also be provided for greater oversight of articling and LPP/PPD work placements. In addition, mandatory education and training will be required for articling principals and LPP/PPD work placement supervisors.
