    In Ontario, legal aides or legal assistants who do not hold a license from the Law Society of Ontario (LSO) are generally limited to performing administrative and support tasks in a legal setting. The key is to avoid engaging in activities that require legal expertise or the provision of legal advice, as those activities are typically reserved for licensed professionals such as lawyers and paralegals. Here are some common tasks that legal aides without a license may perform:

    Administrative Support:
    Drafting and formatting legal documents under the supervision of licensed professionals.
    Managing and organizing legal files.
    Answering phones, scheduling appointments, and handling general correspondence.

    Conducting basic legal research under the guidance and supervision of a licensed professional.

    Client Interaction:
    Interacting with clients to collect and relay non-legal information.
    Providing general information about legal processes and procedures (without offering legal advice).

    Court Assistance:
    Assisting with administrative tasks related to court filings and procedures.
    Coordinating court appearances and managing scheduling.

    Document Preparation:
    Preparing routine legal documents (e.g., filling out forms) under supervision.

    It's crucial to note that legal aides must work under the supervision of licensed professionals, such as lawyers or paralegals, and they should not engage in activities that involve the practice of law without a license. This includes providing legal advice, representing clients in court, or making legal decisions.

    Additionally, the scope of tasks that can be performed without a license may vary, and it's advisable to seek guidance from the Law Society of Ontario or legal professionals to ensure compliance with current regulations and requirements. If you are considering a career as a legal aide, staying informed about relevant legal regulations and seeking guidance from experienced professionals is essential.
