The Law Society has provided resources to assist paralegals with understanding and complying with the new Paralegal Rules of Conduct.

A conflict of interest exists when there is a substantial risk that a paralegal’s loyalty to or representation of a client would be materially and adversely affected by the paralegal’s own interest or the paralegal’s duties to another client, a former client, or a third person. The Law Society’s practice management resource will help you determine if there is a conflict of interest and whether you may act despite the conflict.
