Under section 63.1 of the Law Society Act, the Law Society is required to conduct a review of the regulation of paralegals five years after regulation went into effect. 

The Law Society conducted a consultation to review the manner in which licensed paralegals have been regulated, and the effect that regulation has had on licensed paralegals and on the public who have used paralegal services.

The report is now available.
