Document Review
If I am working as an independent contractor doing document review work only, what are my insurance obligations under the Law Society insurance program?

Document review work can encompass many different types of activities and circumstances. In conducting this type of work, it may be that you are not providing any legal service, advice or opinion or using your skills as a lawyer, but rather, for example, are summarizing and condensing volumes of information into a legally digestible format, similar to what you might do if you worked for a legal publisher.

On the other hand, your work may require that you exercise your knowledge, skills and judgement in the law and apply legal principles, as would normally be expected in conducting document review in support of litigation. So, for example, you might be examining a variety of documents, such as memos, letters, e-mails, spreadsheets, etc., for purposes of preparation of an affidavit of documents, or to determine whether the documentation should be turned over to an opposing party in response to a discovery request, or to determine if a particular document is on point with respect to a specific issue/file/case with which the company or other entity that has engaged you is involved.
