The Law Society of Ontario has cancelled its licensing examinations to protect the public interest and the integrity of the examination process. This comes in the wake of information that suggests a number of examinees had improper access to examination material.
This decision affects approximately 1100 candidates who were set to write online examinations, beginning Tuesday 8th March.
The Law Society is conducting an investigation with third party investigators, which will include those who have recently sat the licensing exam. This could potentially affect recently qualified and those looking to take the licensing exam in the near future.
