What is it Really Like on the PSC?


Serving on the Paralegal Standing Committee (PSC) of the Law Society of Upper Canada may sound like a breeze, but what is it really like?

The Law Society is offering a special live webcast for paralegals thinking about running in the election next March. The free webcast with Jim Varro, the Law Society Elections Officer, is scheduled for Nov. 25, from 5-6 p.m. Register online before Nov. 20.

Varro will provide an overview of the nomination process and the election rules, explain the role of Paralegal Standing Committee members, and outline the time commitments and remuneration for members. Participants will be able to ask questions after the presentation.

To participate in this free session, you must register online in advance.
