LSUC conducts review of discipline operations
The Law Society of Upper Canada has launched a review of the operation of its Professional Regulation division after receiving multiple complaints from employees.

The Professional Regulation division is responsible for resolving, investigating and prosecuting complaints against lawyers and paralegals.

Susan Tonkin, a spokeswoman for the law society, confirmed in a statement that there have been workplace complaints related to the division’s operation and that there is an internal review being conducted by an independent investigator.

Since February, the Professional Regulation division has been restructuring to try to make its investigations and prosecutions more effective and efficient.

“The Law Society recognizes that change can be difficult, but in changing times, adjustment of processes and procedures is necessary to ensure optimal fulfilment of our mission of governing the legal professions in the public interest,” Tonkin said in the statement.
