Class Action Bench-Bar Liaison Committee

The Class Action Bench-Bar Liaison Committee is a bench-bar committee in Ontario established for the following purposes:

1.         to develop practice initiatives to improve the conduct of class proceedings; and

2.         to facilitate communication between class action bench and bar.

Law reform is not the specific purpose of the Committee, although practice initiatives pursued by the Committee may contribute to the development of practice directions or inform future legal reform projects.

The Committee was proposed by the OBA Class Action Section to Associate Chief Justice Marrocco in 2017, and constituted in early 2018.
