The Law Society of Upper Canada

The regulating body for lawyers in Ontario is the Law Society of Upper Canada. LSUC’s various roles are, for the most part, unknown by lawyers and the public. Below is a brief summary of some of LSUC’s

  • Regulating and licensing lawyers and paralegals
  • Maintaining the lawyer referral service for members of the public searching for a lawyer practising a particular area of law
  • Investigating complaints as between lawyers and as between the lawyers and the public and disciplining lawyers as may be required
  • Providing Continuing legal education courses for lawyers
  • Promoting various programs such as Pro Bono Law Ontario

When looking for a lawyer, people often forget to check off the basic requirement of ensuring that the lawyer is in “good standing” with the Law Society. This information can be obtained online at www.lsuc.on.ca
