Regulatory Proceedings

As regulator of Ontario's lawyers and paralegals, the Law Society investigates complaints and other matters where a lawyer or paralegal may have failed to meet standards of learning, professional competence and conduct.

Some matters proceed to a hearing and result in an order by the Tribunal.

The Law Society also prosecutes individuals who practise law or provide legal services directly to the public without a licence.

Information about regulatory proceedings is public and available in this section of the Law Society website and on the Law Society Tribunal website.
