How Good Character is Assessed by the Law Society of Ontario?

In the licensing application, an applicant must answer questions that assist the Law Society in determining whether the applicant is of good character. These questions allow applicants to self-report conduct or circumstances that may raise issues about their character. Self-reporting includes providing full and detailed information about the issues and providing any supporting documentation.

If an applicant’s circumstances change after submitting an application, the applicant must immediately notify the Law Society’s Licensing and Accreditation Department to update the applicant’s answers to any of the good character questions, as necessary.

Answering yes to one or more of the good character questions does not necessarily mean that an applicant will be refused a licence.

When an applicant answers yes to one or more of the good character questions, the applicant’s application is reviewed in the good character review process.
