Welcome to the web site of The Law Society of Yukon. The Society is the governing body for Yukon lawyers, under the authority of the Legal Profession Act. The primary duty of our Society is to serve and protect the public interest in the administration of justice and the preservation of individual rights, while respecting the law and the independence of lawyers' relationships with their clients.

We invite you to browse through our site. If you have any comments or questions about The Law Society of Yukon please contact us with your feedback.

Toward a New Legal Profession Act

The Legal Profession Act governs and regulates the practise of law in the Yukon. The Law Society of Yukon has embarked on a project to revise and update the Legal Profession Act. We are working toward introduction of the new Bill in the Legislature in the fall of 2012.

There have been many developments in terms of the regulation of professions generally and the legal profession specifically, since the passage of our current Legal Profession Act. In the development of a new Act, it is critical that we are aware of the various perspectives of all relevant stakeholders in terms of the role and function of the Law Society.
