Program Description The Fleming Paralegal diploma is accredited with the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC ). The LSUC is the governing body for paralegals. Fleming program courses meet all competency requirements and prepare you to write the licencing exam and become a member of the LSUC. As a licenced paralegal in Ontario you can commission documents, represent clients dealing with lawsuits falling within the jurisdiction of Small Claims Court. You can act for people facing summary conviction charges under municipal by-laws, provincial statutes or the Criminal Code. Some serve as by-law enforcement personnel, or act in a prosecutorial capacity for municipal governments. Paralegals are also trained to assist clients through the potentially complex proceedings of tribunals such as the, Landlord and Tenant Board, the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, or the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal. Some paralegals choose to work under the supervision of lawyers or other paralegals, while others offer their services directly to the public.
