Draft Addition to Clarify Paralegal Scope of Activities in Arbitrations

previous post: Arbitration vs. Court – A Comparison Table next post: Arbitration and Consumer Protection

We’ve drafted a proposal to update section 6 of by-law 4 to clarify a paralegal’s scope of practice in arbitrations.

All that is needed is one definition.  We propose the following definition:

“tribunal established under an Act of the Legislature of Ontario” includes an arbitral tribunal pursuant to the Arbitration Act, 1991 but does not include an arbitration to which the Family Law Act applies.
