The LTB has a wealth of binding caselaw from appeals to Divisional
Court and the Ontario Court of Appeal. These appeals are
binding on the Board, and can be used to bullet-proof your case.
LTB decisions may be persuasive, but decisions from the appeal
Courts have the real power.
This webinar will provide you
with my most popular appellate decisions that I keep in my everyday
caselaw file. I will discuss the important decisions, how they
can be argued and what the ratio of each case is. For new
paralegals, it will be an overview of the importance of caselaw.
For experienced paralegals, it will provide you with the leading
cases that can improve your practice results.
