Supervising lawyer(s) must have completed at least 3 full years of practice in Ontario and be in good standing with the Law Society of Ontario (LSO) including no open investigations. Supervising lawyer(s) may only supervise up to two licensing candidates (Articling Students and/or LPP Candidates) simultaneously.
Work experience remuneration has generally ranged from minimum wage to as high as $1700/week depending on the employer. Expenses incurred by candidates during the completion of client work or other office-related activities should be reimbursed directly to the candidate. LPP Work Experience must be: a) located in the Province of Ontario and b) full-time (at least 35 working hours per week).
LPP Work Experiences are expected to be in person in a normal program year. However, so long as effective supervision can be maintained by the work experience supervisor, the work experience can be in-person, remote or a combination thereof, during the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with LSO guidelines. Employers may contact firstname.lastname@example.org should they have any questions.
