About LSO
Created by an act of the Legislative Assembly in 1797, the Law Society of Ontario governs Ontario’s lawyers and paralegals in the public interest by ensuring that the people of Ontario are served by lawyers and paralegals who meet high standards of learning, competence and professional conduct.
Make a Complaint

Before you make a complaint to the Law Society, you should try to resolve the problem first. Speak with your lawyer or paralegal about your concerns - most want to solve problems before they become complaints.
