LSUC Committee Now Supports LPP Extension

Dear Petition Supporters, I'm writing to share some good news. The Law Society's Professional Development and Competence Committee, which originally recommended termination of the LPP, has revised its position in a new report. They now recommend continuing the LPP for at least two more years. The new report is here: http://www.lsuc.on.ca/uploadedFiles/PDC-Pathways-Report-27-10-16.pdf . No final decision has been made yet. On November 9, 2016, the new recommendations will be deliberated in a meeting of Convocation (the Law Society's governing body). The meeting that will be webcast, check http://www.lsuc.on.ca in early November for more details. However this new recommendation is a very important and encouraging step. THANK YOU for your support of this petition, which I believe was very persuasive to the Committee. - Noel Semple Assistant Professor U. Windsor Faculty of Law www.noelsemple.ca @NoelSemple
