Unbundled Legal Services Canadian Survey
Dr. Rachel Birnbaum

Family limited legal services, also known as unbundling of legal services or limited scope retainers, is becoming a significant area of practice for some family lawyers in Canada. There is, however, little research about the views and experiences of lawyers practicing in this way, and many lawyers who engage in this type of work are interested in learning about the experiences of other lawyers who do this. This study is intended to address these important gaps in knowledge, and the results may influence further policy and program development as well as professional practice.

The survey takes approximately 15 minutes and can be completed at your convenience. Thank you for your time. Dr. Birnbaum can also be contacted by email at: for any questions or comments.
