Provincial Offences for Paralegals, 3rd Edition
Provincial Offences for Paralegals, 3rd Edition provides students with an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the procedures involved in laying and prosecuting charges under provincial legislation. Designed to meet LSO requirements, this guidebook integrates the Paralegal Rules of Conduct and the LSO By-Laws directly into the content so that paralegal students can prepare to represent their clients before the Ontario Courts of Justice.
The topics covered in this text include the classification of offences and available defences, different procedural streams and charging documents, the preparation for and anatomy of a trial, and administrative monetary penalties.
The third edition includes a recurring case study that guides students through the steps of litigating regulatory offences, including the completion of relevant forms and new mock trial activities that provide context to content and allow students to apply their knowledge.
