McCarthy Tétrault litigators contribute multiple chapters to ‘Civil Procedure and Practice in Ontario 2021’
Toronto, September 21, 2021 — To help specialist litigators and the general public meaningfully navigate the Ontario courts, nine McCarthy Tétrault litigators have contributed chapters to “Civil Procedure and Practice in Ontario 2021.” This free resource, currently available through CanLII, provides a comprehensive overview of the Rules of Civil Procedure, the Courts of Justice Act, and the Limitations Act, along with the interpreting case law. With access to justice at the book’s heart, it offers practitioners and the public alike a comprehensive overview of one of the most challenging yet important areas of the province’s civil litigation system.
Sarit Batner, one of the book’s contributors and a partner in McCarthy Tétrault’s Litigation Group, noted the high level of collaboration and dedication in producing such a thorough resource.
“One-hundred and thirty-five of the province’s leading practitioners and experts contributed to this book, and though we’re often across the table from one another, we all share a passion for promoting a truly accessible civil justice system in Ontario,” Sarit said. “Civil procedure remains one of the most important elements in dispute resolution. With self-represented litigants increasingly appearing before the courts, our hope is that this resource will ease the burden on all parties.”
The diverse group of McCarthy Tétrault litigators writing chapters for the book include partners, associates, and students:
- Sean Petrou, Rules of Civil Procedure Chapters, Parties and Joinder, Rule 6.1 - Separate Hearings
- Atrisha Lewis, Meghan Bridges, Sarah Murphy, Rules of Civil Procedure Chapters, Discovery, Rule 29.1 - Discovery Plan
