Established in 1999, the Law Society of Nunavut is a self-governing Society which derives its authority from the Legal Profession Act of Nunavut. The Law Society is responsible for governing the legal profession in the public interest according to Nunavut law and the Law Society’s rules, regulations, guidelines and the Canadian Bar Association’s Code of Professional Conduct.
It is our responsibility to ensure that the people of Nunavut are served by lawyers who meet high standards of competence, learning and professional conduct; and, to uphold the independence, integrity and honour of the legal profession. We believe that the Public is well served by a legal profession that is independent, responsible, and responsive to the needs of the public it serves.
