Judge-led Intensive Case Management Court

Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) is supporting the new Judge-Led Intensive Case Management Court (JICMC) with time-limited certificates for accused people without retained counsel whose matters are more than twelve months old and who have had their cases adjourned to the JICMC.

Accused are not required to contact LAO to make an application. They can select a lawyer on the panel, who will then initiate and complete a lawyer-assisted application for JICMC on behalf of their client.

Accused are provided with a handout with more information including local duty counsel office numbers. Financial testing is not necessary in this situation.

Help educate accused about the availability of this new certificate by using our handout to provide them with more information.
