Some complaints raise conduct issues that are ‘close to the line’ of conduct unbecoming. In such a situation, the Conduct Investigation Committee will recommend a Conduct Review.
When a Conduct Review takes place, the member whose conduct is the subject of review is asked to attend with a Conduct Review Committee to “counsel the member”. This usually entails a face to face meeting between the Conduct Review Committee and the member to discuss the complaint and the issues of concern in an effort to impress upon the member that the conduct was inappropriate and bordered on “conduct unbecoming”. The meeting is meant to assist the member to identify and accept responsibility for the conduct that caused concern, to learn from the complaint and Conduct Review, and to change their conduct to proactively prevent similar situations in the future.
The results of the Conduct Review are reported to the Conduct Investigation Committee. If the report is acceptable to the Conduct Investigation Committee, it is then provided to the member and becomes a part of the member’s conduct history with the Law Society. The complainant will receive a summary of the outcome of the Conduct Review as directed by the Conduct Investigation Committee. The fact situation and outcome is also published anonymously on the Law Society website. Publishing the Conduct Review fact situation and outcome is meant to inform members and the public of conduct that is inappropriate and close to the line of “conduct unbecoming”.
