A Legal Topic Checklist

This checklist assists clients to identify legal topics that apply in their personal circumstances and provides them with information about those issues that will be helpful, especially when preparing to meet with their lawyer for the first time.

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. I can also be reached at: for any questions or comments.

Thank you for visiting the Ontario’s Family Law Limited Scope Services Project website.

The Ontario Family Law Limited Scope Services Project’s aim is to improve access to family justice for middle and lower income Ontarians by increasing the use of limited scope retainers, legal coaching and summary legal counsel in family law cases.

The Project facilitates access to and use of these services through the creation of this website hosting a province-wide roster of trained lawyers willing and able to provide such services. Prospective clients are able to search this website by location, type of service and service provider.
