British Columbia Newsletter About Unbundling Legal Services today published an article about the BC Family Justice Innovation Lab in British Columbia.

A major focus of the lab is the "unbundling" of legal services.

The concept describes a situation where a client hires a lawyer or paralegal to complete specific discrete tasks, the client handling the rest of the legal problem.

The client is charged only for those tasks agreed to in advance, unlike in the traditional full-representation model.

For example, a client opting for an out-of-court process like mediation would contract with a lawyer for legal advice before mediation or for the drafting of a binding agreement after mediation. 

Unbundling is proving to be popular and a more affordable avenue for many people.

The Lab also publishes a newsletter.
