CANADIAN CROSS-BORDER LEGAL PRACTICE: ONE BAR IS SUFFICIENT

Canada has made a concerted effort to provide its lawyers with inter-province mobility, allowing them to practice law outside of their legal training and licensing jurisdiction. Specifically, Canada enacted the National Mobility Agreement and Territorial Mobility Agreement. Under these rules, an attorney licensed in one Canadian province may practice law in another jurisdiction, as long as he or she is entitled to practice in their home jurisdiction (i.e. they are in good standing). Further, an applicant attempting to practice in another jurisdiction need not pass that jurisdiction’s legal licensing examinations; they must simply certify that they understand the materials and rules reasonably required in that to practice in that jurisdiction. These rules allow Canadian attorneys to freely follow their clients and practice law where they so please. In Canada, one bar examination is sufficient.
