For the Public


The Law Society of Alberta is the self-governing body for Alberta’s lawyers. Its mandate is to regulate the profession in the public interest. The Law Society sets standards and enforces those standards for Alberta lawyers.

In serving the public interest, it has a Complaints process for members of the public. The Conduct department reviews all complaints about lawyer conduct or competency.

As the regulatory body of Alberta lawyers, the Law Society of Alberta is authorized under the Legal Profession Act to conduct hearings once citations are laid, and to communicate information about the outcomes of hearings.

Please note: The Law Society of Alberta does not provide legal advice.
