NSBS in the news

The following media reports were published since the last edition of InForum:

Julie Macfarlane conducted a full day workshop for the Nova Scoria Barrister’s Society on November 12th on how lawyers might work with SRLs, either offering direct services as “legal coaches”, or working opposite a SRL on the other side of a matter. A coaching model would allow lawyers to offer unbundled services to equip SRLs to move forward on their own, perhaps with regular review and assistance from the “lawyer-coach”. NSBS is interested in promoting this model as part of its new A2J mandate, and also as a business opportunity for the growing number of newly called lawyers having difficulty finding work.
If your organization is interested in an informative and interactive workshop on coaching SRLs – custom-designed for either lawyers providing coaching in a legal advice model, or non-lawyers offering coaching support to SRLs in other ways, or for both groups – please contact Julie or Sue at representingyourself@gmail.com.
