What happens if I do not respond to the Law Society or Good Character Investigator?

If you do not respond to correspondence from the Law Society regarding your problem of good character, or if you do not provide the documents or information requested by the investigator assigned to your case within the prescribed time, your license application could be considered abandoned. You will not be able to make another claim unless you can demonstrate a material change in circumstances and only after a period of one year from the date your claim was deemed abandoned. 

[1] Section 8(3) of Law Society By -Law No.  4 requires an applicant to provide all documents and information specified in the licensing application with respect to the applicant’s good character, and that all such documents and information be delivered at the time specified by the Bar.
