Candidates: Are You Ready? Test Yourself & Find Out

typing-keyboardEmond Exam Prep has launched a new, expanded Paralegal Practice Exam, for candidates writing the revised 2015 Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) Licensing Exam. Because the format and content of the exam have changed, Emond Exam Prep has updated its service with a comprehensive, 170-question practice exam. The updated practice exam contains substantive multiple-choice questions in the new areas being tested for competency, as well as questions pertaining to paralegal ethics, professionalism, and practice management.

After completing the sample exam, candidates receive not only an overall score, but also a subject-specific performance breakdown. Explanations for answers, including references to case law, Rules, legislation and regulations, ensures that candidates can focus their study efforts effectively by reviewing these sources. You may take the practice exam up to four times.

Competencies covered in the practice exam include:

  • Ethics and professional responsibility
  • Advocacy
  • Criminal summary conviction procedures
  • Provincial Offences
  • Evidence
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Administrative law
  • Tribunal practice and procedures
  • Residential Landlord & Tenant law
  • Employment law
  • Torts, contracts and Small Claims Court

Licensing candidates can try an eight-question sample exam by registering on the Emond Exam Prep site. Registering costs nothing, and makes you eligible to receive special promotions and discounts.

For those who want extra coaching on particular topics, Emond Exam Prep also offers online preparation course options. Separate lectures on each subject can be rented for $15 to $60 and are available for the August, October and February sessions.

  1. Just wanted to point out that the Emond exam focuses primarily on ethics and does not drill down deep enough into criminal law or POA of which there are a substantial number of questions on the exam. The exam also fails to test on process and timelines for appeals. There are also no scenarios which would test for deeper understanding of intertwined items such as a 16 year old charged under POA or a 16 year old wishing to proceed in small claims court. Overall it is a good very basic test but it won’t help you pass if you don’t have deeper knowledge. (I passed the Feb 2016 exam first try, but my colleagues who used Emond primarily, didn’t fair so well)
