Ontario legal practitioners using uLawPractice will now be able to automate more than 30 civil court forms.
Developers recently implemented this new feature, which would see the automation of forms such as writs of possession, writs of delivery, requests to renew, requisitions for garnishment, renewals of garnishment, warrants of commission, notices of appeal, cross notices, redeem requests; and many, many more!
Seizing the power of automation at your law firm means cutting down on time spent doing activities that could otherwise be better served in the courtroom, or with clients. Cutting down time on clerical work while offering enhanced compliance and efficiency is what uLawPractice is all about.
Founded in 2011, uLawPractice has rapidly grown since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The software is now a staple educational resource in the majority of Ontario colleges teaching law clerks and legal assistants. This is because uLawPractice is the most advanced type of cloud-based software currently available on the Canadian market: it’s entirely focused on satisfying the needs of Canadian practitioners. Canadians come first!
How to automate your Ontario Civil court forms
First of all, you’ll need to ensure that your uLaw account knows that you’re an Ontario legal practitioner. In order to do this, we request that you quickly log into your uLaw account, visit
Settings (top right)->Details->Address to make sure.
Scroll down to the section on your address and ensure you see Ontario selected. If not selected, you won’t have the option to automate these forms.
Then, if you go to legal matters (left column), and click on 'Court Forms', you should see civil court forms are now available.You know you’ll be on the right track if you see the big dropdown menu: it'll show a wide variety of different forms available for generation.
Once you get a hold of the court form and download it, a large amount of the form will already be pre-filled, making use of data that you’ve already inputted into the uLaw system. In this way, you’ll be saving yourself a lot of extra time that you otherwise would have spent manually typing the information in.
There may be portions of such forms which will require immediate attention, and they should be fairly straightforward based on which legal matter it is that you’re handling.
The below image is just an example of one of many, many Ontario civil court forms that can now be automated with the uLaw system.
