Can a paralegal represent a party in an arbitration pursuant to the Arbitration Act?
While it appears the answer to this question is yes and paralegals can represent parties where more than $25,000 is at stake, there is no concrete answer.
However in Colorado, this has been questioned and at present it appears as the answer is NO.
There are strong policy arguments in favour of paralegal representation in arbitrations and, given the uncertainty, the Law Society of Upper Canada should update its bylaws to confirm that paralegals can appear at arbitrations pursuant to the Arbitration Act.
A stunning reversal of fortune for the plaintiffs in a $4.25 million truck-crash case resulted from a defense-team paralegal’s ability to read French. A charred document from the wreck scene that had been assumed to be a birth certificate for the victim, Hawa Sissoko, was in fact a marriage license, in French, from her home country of Mali. That sent the defense scrambling to determine whether Sissoko, a 28-year-old immigrant living in Chicago at the time of the 2007 accident, was married, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. She was, but her uncle, serving as estate administrator, produced a document showing that she was also divorced.
