Our Litigation for Law Clerks course is equivalent to the Litigation course offered by the Institute of Law Clerks of Ontario (ILCO) and prepares you for the ILCO Litigation exam. Intended for experienced legal assistants or law clerks, this exam preparation course focuses on civil practice that involves researching, drafting pleadings, preparing documents for court proceedings, preparing documentary evidence, preparing for and assisting at trial and appeals, and conducting examinations in aid of the execution and enforcement of orders.
Course Delivery Method:
This is normally an in-class course but will be offered temporarily online via Blackboard Learn/Collaborate while college buildings are closed.
You must register in and pay for this course through George Brown College and register in and pay for the Litigation exam through the ILCO. (ILCO exams are written according to the ILCO exam schedules. To sit the exam, you must submit the online ILCO Provincial Litigation Exam registration form before the ILCO exam registration deadline.) For more information (including the current registration fee and a link to the online registration form), visit the Litigation Exam Policies and Registration Forms web page on the ILCO website. Your final grade will be issued by the ILCO after you complete the exam.
You will have the most success in this course if you already have a secondary school diploma and two years of related work experience in the legal field and a good command of written English before you start this course.
