The Law Commission of Ontario (LCO) is seeking public proposals for new law reform projects.
According to the LCO’s press release, by definition, LCO reports break new ground in law reform. This is an opportunity for individuals and organizations to work with Ontario’s leading law reform agency to develop independent, principled and authoritative advice on important legal issues.

The LCO’s current work includes projects addressing class actions, digital rights, defamation in the age of the Internet and legal issues in the last stages of life.  

Any person or organization residing in Ontario can submit a proposal, including legal professionals, legal organizations, NGOs, governments, academics or members of the public.  

The deadline to submit your proposal is Sept. 27, 2019.

More information about the LCO’s Call for Proposals, including the process and selection criteria, is available on its project proposal webpage.
