Call for Comments: Lawyer Licensing System

FACL needs your input.

The Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) is seeking to amend the lawyer licensing system in Ontario. The proposed changes are contained in the LSUC Professional Development and Competence Committee Report of April 28, 2016.

The proposed changes were initially to come into force for the 2017-2018 licensing year however LSUC has decided to defer the amendments and solicit input from professional organizations such as ours.

FACL Ontario is formulating a position on the proposed changes and we are seeking your input on the impact the proposed changes will have. Please email Phil Tsui at with your comments.

Please see the report of LSUC here.
