Saskatchewan Legal Coaching and Unbundled Services Pilot Project (LCUP)

Saskatchewan Legal Coaching and Unbundled Services Pilot Project (LCUP)

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.
