    About the Dialogue on Licensing


Message From the Treasurer

As the legal profession continues to evolve, the licensing process needs to keep pace.

That is why, on November 9th, 2016, following the review and subsequent two-year extension of the Pathways Pilot Project, the Law Society’s governing body approved embarking on a comprehensive review of the lawyer licensing process in Ontario. As a result, this past spring, we have engaged extensively with the profession and other stakeholders to formulate long-term recommendations for an appropriate, sustainable lawyer licensing system in Ontario.

The Dialogue on Licensing saw the Law Society hold a series of facilitated in-person and webcast group discussions on the future of our licensing process.

This is a critical issue for the profession and together, we can chart a course for the future. We all have a role to play and I firmly believe that this process can lead to solutions that will have a long-lasting impact.

I encourage you to provide written comments.

Paul B. Schabas

Treasurer, Law Society of Ontario
