Committees

Ethics Committee

 

The governing standards of the Legal Profession are contained in The Legal Profession Act, the Rules of the Law Society of Saskatchewan and the Code of Professional Conduct.  Professional Conduct rulings rendered by the Law Society of Saskatchewan Ethics Committee are available online. The Committee makes rulings which apply the Code of Conduct and the Rules to specific fact situations involving lawyers and are published anonymously as guidance for the profession. The Committee reviews requests for rulings by the members as well as complaints brought forward by the public that do not appear to raise conduct issues but rather "grey area" ethical issues that require discussion.

If a member requires assistance with an ethical matter, please contact the Law Society for guidance. If further guidance is required, please submit your request for ruling in writing to the Law Society.
