Paralegals who want to bypass security at the new Waterloo Regional courthouse in Kitchener are able to obtain security passes, resolving an issue that was reported in April.
The Manager of Court Operations office will take a copy of the Law Society ID, as part of the application process. The Facilities Office has been issuing the security passes quickly, paralegals report.
The Manager of Court Operations advised in the spring that a process was being developed, to provide security passes to local legal professionals.
