Paralegal Education Program Accreditation

In January 2004, the Attorney General of Ontario asked the Law Society to expand its public interest mandate to include regulation of paralegals. As part of its mandate, the Law Society accredits every Paralegal Education Program in Ontario, approved by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Accreditation is required for Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology and Private Career Colleges that wish to offer a Paralegal Education Program.

Programs are required to include, at a minimum, certain mandatory courses that cover the essential elements of procedural and substantive, as well as ethical and responsible, legal services practice. The Accreditation Package sets out the New Standards for accredited Paralegal Education and includes the Forms required for an institution to make an Application for accreditation.
