For the Public


The Law Society of Alberta is the independent regulator of the legal profession. We regulate in the public interest by promoting and enforcing a high standard of professional and ethical conduct by Alberta lawyers.

In order to effectively do our job, we rely on you, whether you are a member of the public, another lawyer or a member of the business community, to share information about your experiences with lawyers. Read more about how to provide information concerning a lawyer.

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.
