A Working Group comprised of the Law Society of Saskatchewan, Ministry of Justice, and CREATE Justice (the Centre for Research, Evaluation and Action Towards Equal Justice), College of Law have launched the “Saskatchewan Legal Coaching and Unbundled Services Pilot Project” (LCUP). The purpose of the project is to support, enhance, and advance legal coaching and the use of limited scope retainers.
The Working Group intends to engage in a number of actions to advance this topic in Saskatchewan, such as posting a list of lawyers who are interested in engaging in legal coaching and unbundling to improve the public’s access to such services, continuing to deliver Continuing Professional Development seminars for lawyers on the topic, developing related practice resources, and evaluating, reporting, and conducting research related to the project.
We are pleased to announce the launch of a website for the Saskatchewan Legal Coaching and Unbundling Pilot Project (LCUP), developed through a collaboration of the Law Society of Saskatchewan, CREATE Justice at the College of Law, and the Ministry of Justice. The website features information and resources for both lawyers and the public.
We invite you to check out the new website and provide us with your feedback on the pilot project – an evaluation of the pilot project will launch through CREATE Justice in 2020 to formally gather feedback, thanks to the support of the Canadian Foundation for Legal Research.
