A Task Team has been appointed to examine the possibility of allowing non-lawyers to provide some legal services to Saskatchewan residents. The Team will consider a wide range of possible approaches and varying degrees of service delivery and make recommendations about the appropriate role, if any, of non-lawyers in the provision of legal services.
The Task Team is a joint project by the Ministry of Justice and the Law Society of Saskatchewan. For more information, please see this News Release, dated May 5, 2017.
