Stay tuned! As part of WEL Partners’ continued commitment to providing accessible education on estates and trusts law, we are thrilled to announce our participation in the second edition of Civil Procedure and Practice in Ontario (“CPPO”), a free, online, and user-friendly annotated volume which comprehensively explains the Rules of Civil Procedure, the Courts of Justice Act, and the Limitations Act.
Whether you are a lawyer or a lay-person, the law governing civil disputes in Ontario is voluminous and can be difficult to navigate. Written by a team of over 135 leading litigators and experts in Ontario Civil Procedure, CPPO is a free legal research tool written in plain English which seeks to demystify court procedures and the rules which surround them, to make the law more accessible to all.
Led by Professor Noel Semple of the University of Windsor Faculty of Law, in conjunction with CanLII, CPPO was first published in September of 2021 and has since gained wide traction amongst law students, law staff, lawyers, and the public alike. The book has even won a coveted Clawbie award for best long-form publication in 2021 (https://www.clawbies.ca).
In its forthcoming second edition, expected in mid-2022, WEL Partners will be returning to provide updates to its original three chapters pertaining to the Rules of Civil Procedure: Rule 9 (Estates and Trusts), Rule 10 (Representation Order), and Rule 73 (Reciprocal Enforcement of United Kingdom Judgments).
