About the event

This seminar is available in person or via webinar

When considering making an allegation of wrongdoing by another practitioner to the Legal Profession Complaints Committee, it is important to think carefully about balancing your ethical concerns with the potentially serious repercussions of making the allegation.  Allegations made without proper cause or unsubstantiated by evidence may turn the disciplinary tables the other way.

Receive some practical guidance about issues to consider before making the allegation, and hear examples of how the Committee has responded in the past to unjustified or unsubstantiated allegations of misconduct by one practitioner against another.
