Legal Aid Online: More than just a billing portal

Posted on: Friday, September 14, 2012

Legal Aid Online is far more than a secure Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) portal that enables lawyers who do legal aid work to submit accounts for payment and to acknowledge and manage their certificates.

It also enables the bar to communicate with LAO about payments and electronically submit documents.

Among its services:

  • Online billing and status updates.
  • Updates to clients.
  • Certificate status updates by email or text message.
  • Online training and tutorials.
  • Direct access to LAO LAW, using a single sign-in.
