Learn about unbundled legal services

May 28, 2019

Earlier this month we teamed up with Courthouse Libraries BC to present a webinar on unbundled legal services — and how librarians and other intermediaries can refer people to these services. The recording of the webinar is now available on the Courthouse Libraries' Vimeo channel.

If you help the public deal with legal problems, you’ll want to learn how with unbundling, people can access more affordable legal help. Two passionate experts, Kari Boyle and Sonali Sharma, explain how unbundled services work and dive into the challenges and possibilities offered by this new model for legal services.

The webinar highlights how unbundled services are taking hold in family law matters. Over 150 BC lawyers are now listed in a directory of family law lawyers who offer unbundled services. Many will work remotely with clients in other locations, and some lawyers offer services in multiple languages.  

The webinar includes a demo of our new unbundled legal services website, designed to help the public understand unbundled legal services and whether they would be a good fit for their situation. 

This website explains in a general way the law that applies in British Columbia, Canada. The information is not intended as legal advice. The cases we refer to reflect real experiences, but names have been changed. See our full disclaimer.
