Certificates & Letters

A Certificate of Standing is a detailed document issued by the Law Society of Ontario, which outlines full details about a licensee’s status, discipline history and ongoing investigations, if any.  A Certificate of Standing may be required by licensees for mobility or employment purposes in order to confirm whether the licensee is entitled to practise law or provide legal services in Ontario.


A status letter is a basic document outlining a licensee’s current status and whether he/she is entitled to practise law or provide legal services in Ontario.  There are no restrictions on the preparation and release of a status letter.
