Requirements for Admission to the FLLSS Lawyer Roster
Ontario’s Family Law Limited Scope Services Project reserves the right to add or remove lawyers from the Family Law Limited Scope Services Roster at our discretion.
Province-wide recruitment and training of family lawyers to join the roster is ongoing. The minimum requirements for admission to the roster are as follows:
- A minimum of at least 3 most recent consecutive years in the practice of law in which family law comprised at least 33% of your practice.
- Family law must comprise a minimum of 33% of your current practice at the time of your application.
- You must have completed the FLLSS training provided by the Project before submitting your application to the roster.
- If, at any point in your practice, there occurs a change in circumstances that would prevent you from offering the services connected to this project and roster, it is the lawyer’s responsibility to inform the project’s coordinators of this fact (firstname.lastname@example.org). This could range from a change of practice area or geographic location, a disciplinary hearing or suspension with the Law Society of Ontario or simply a desire to no longer be included in the list.
Information about training is available via webinar and upcoming in-person sessions and the registration process is posted here: https://www.familylawlss.ca/events
