Thank you for the question the role of MacKenzie Friend and that of a representative are different. When looking at civil court, there are strict rules to what a MF can and cannot do as only a solicit has the right to provide advice and legal guidance etc. however a MF can sit with the claimant or even speak on their behalf but not provided representation. In the Tribunal, a representative does not require to be legally qualified therefore you should make it clear to the judge if you are acting as a MF or a representative. Clearly, the judge to this point has had no issue with your providing representation therefore I do not see why this would change. However, ultimately, it would be up to the judge to order a position on this matter.
