Frugal (Not Cheap) Paralegals: Resources for Us


Looking for ways to cut back on research and professional development costs? The Law Society of Upper Canada offers inexpensive tools and resources for the frugal paralegal.

Review articles and materials from past Continuing Professional Development (CPD) sessions, at the Law Society of Upper Canada’s (LSUC) CPD site.

AccessCLE is a website that contains the full text to all LSUC seminars since 2004. The texts are all free to read and those older than 18 months are free to download. 

There are two search pages. The Simple Search page features one box for terms, and a drop-down menu that allows a narrowed search to pinpoint specific areas of law, or other LSUC online materials. The Advanced Search page uses a drop-down subject menu, plus search functions to look for words within a variety of fields, including title, author, date, summary or whole text — or any combination. 

Seminar papers can be read, saved, and sent to yourself or someone else. Articles 18 months are free of charge and more recent articles cost $25.00 to $35.00.

Another research tool available to paralegals is the Law Society’s InfoLocate. This is the search and discovery tool for the print and electronic holdings of the Great Library and Ontario County and District Law Association Libraries.

Search for books, journals and other print materials, e-books, e-journals, online CLE articles and websites.
