Make a complaint
The Society regulates conduct rules between lawyers and deals with complaints against lawyers.
The Legal Profession Act 2006 provides for the Society to be the first tier of a three-tiered system of regulation of the legal profession, comprising the Society, the Legal Practitioners' Disciplinary Tribunal and the Supreme Court.
The Society will assess and/or investigate complaints and refer serious matters to the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal. In order to do this, complaints must be made in writing to the Society.
BEFORE lodging your complaint, please read the Complaints and Discipline Guide.
You can lodge a complaint against a lawyer using the Complaints Form.
All complaints should be addressed to:
Manager Regulatory Services
Law Society Northern Territory
GPO Box 2388
Darwin NT 0801
An original copy of the complaint form is required.
A complainant not satisfied with the Society's handling of a complaint may refer the matter to the Legal Practitioners' Disciplinary Tribunal.
