Accessing Tribunal Files

The Law Society Tribunal keeps a copy of all hearing-related documents that are filed with us. Most of these documents are public and may be accessed by anyone.

Those interested in viewing public documents from a closed file should contact the Tribunal to request a file review.

File Review Requests

The Law Society Tribunal keeps a copy of all hearing-related documents that are filed with us. Most of these documents are public and may be accessed by anyone. For a list of what documents within a file are public, see Rule 13 of the Rules of Practice and Procedure.

Active Files

Public documents from active or recently closed files can usually be accessed on-demand by emailing tribunal@lso.ca. It may take several days to scan a large file.

Closed Files

All public documents can be uploaded to a file-sharing service that can be accessed from any computer.

  • This service costs $80 (HST included). 
  • Electronic file reviews can be purchased using a credit card through the LSO store, or with a cheque or money order by filling out this form and emailing it to tribunal@lso.ca.
  • Please allow up to ten business days for the file to be recalled from storage and scanned.
