Summary of Dialogue Sessions: Mediators, the LSBC and the “Unauthorized Practice of Law”

The Law Society of BC issued an Information Form on the Unauthorized Practice of Law at the beginning of 2015. Mediate BC distributed the information form to Roster mediators by email (Jan. 21, 2015) and here on the Mediate BC Blog (Feb. 19, 2015). In June, Mediate BC hosted three dialogue sessions with Mike Kleisinger, Unauthorized Practice Counsel with the Law Society of BC, as special guest.

We would like to thank all those who participated in the dialogue sessions. Mediate BC welcomes further discussion in the LinkedIn Roster Mediators group or in the comments below. If you would prefer to share something privately, we welcome your email.

Below is the summary of the three dialogue sessions held in June 2015.

The “family checklists” shared by various members (and mentioned on page 4) at the dialogue session are available for Roster mediators on the Mediate BC intranet in the general mediation discussion forum.
