About Us

The Law Society of British Columbia is the licensing and regulatory body for lawyers in BC. 

We protect the public by setting and enforcing standards of professional and ethical conduct for lawyers. We provide information and resources for both lawyers and the public on the standards of conduct, the complaints and discipline process, and hearings, which are conducted independently by the Law Society Tribunal. The Law Society also brings a voice to issues affecting the justice system and the delivery of legal services in BC.

Our Mission

To serve the public interest by regulating the competence and integrity of legal service providers, promoting the rule of law and lawyer independence, and improving access to justice.

Our Vision

To be a leading regulator that promotes a culture of innovation and inclusivity in responding to the challenges and opportunities in the delivery and regulation of legal services.

The Law Society is located on the traditional territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, specifically the territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) First Nations.
