Make a complaint


The Society regulates conduct rules between lawyers and deals with complaints against lawyers.

The Legal Profession Act 2006 provides for the Society to be the first tier of a three-tiered system of regulation of the legal profession, comprising the Society, the Legal Practitioners' Disciplinary Tribunal and the Supreme Court.

The Society will assess and/or investigate complaints and refer serious matters to the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal. In order to do this, complaints must be made in writing to the Society.

BEFORE lodging your complaint, please read the Complaints and Discipline Guide.

You can lodge a complaint against a lawyer using the Complaint Form.

All completed Complaint Forms can be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or posted to:
