The Law Society is a member of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada, an association of the fourteen provincial and territorial bodies governing the legal profession across Canada.
In 1846, the Law Society was incorporated as the "Barristers' Society" for the "purpose of securing in the Province a learned and honourable legal profession, for establishing order and good conduct among its members and for promoting knowledgeable development and reform of the law".
The objects and duties of the Society are: (1) to uphold and protect the public interest in the administration of justice; (2) to preserve and protect the rights and freedoms of all persons; (3) to ensure independence, integrity and honor of its members; (4) to establish standards of education, professional responsibility and competence of its members and applicants to membership; (5) to regulate the legal profession.
