Law Society Consultation - Lawyer Licensing

In November 2016, LSO Convocation requested that the Professional Development & Competence Committee (the “Committee”) develop long-term recommendations for the licensing process. 

On May 24, 2018, the Law Society of Ontario (“LSO”) released a Consultation Paper entitled “Options for Lawyer Licensing” (the “Consultation Paper”). 

The Consultation Paper can be found at LSO Consultation Paper

Any comments are due to the LSO by October 26, 2018.

Background documents and information on the Consultation Paper can be found at

OBA members are encouraged to consider the LSO proposals and share any comments with us at (“LSO Licensing” in the subject line).
