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.
