Professional Standards Committee

The Law Society has a statutory obligation to maintain and improve the professional standards of the legal profession and to protect the public from inadequate advice and representation. These obligations are fulfilled in various ways — through education, investigation, intervention and support. The Law Society investigates complaints against solicitors, unqualified practitioners, and associates of legal practices. The Law Society ensures solicitors are ‘fit and proper’ persons for legal practice and undertakes litigation for complaints referred to the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal and the Courts. Complaints are handled through the Law Society’s Professional Standards Committee. 

If you would like to make a general enquiry about a possible complaint you can click here to submit an online enquiry to the Society.

You can contact the committee directly through the Enquiries & Assessment Officer, Isobel Clark, on 02 6274 0300.
