Notice of Upcoming Public Hearings
As the regulatory body of lawyers in Newfoundland and Labrador the Law Society of Newfoundland and Labrador is authorized under the Law Society Act, 1999 to file complaints against members.
Please note: A complaint is an unproven allegation until an adjudication tribunal makes a determination on its validity. At any hearing a settlement may be proposed.
Law Society disciplinary hearings generally take place at the Law Society office at 196-198 Water Street, St. John’s and are open to the public. However, the adjudication tribunal does have discretion to order part or all of the hearing to be held in camera in order to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of privileged or confidential information.
