This action is very important to protect our profession, credibility, and the public interest.
Unauthorized activity has a very broad definition and it is our duty to disclose it without any fear. If we look at our profession and practice, this activity could be defined in the following ways:
1- Ghost consultants not authorized but practicing Canadian law anywhere in the word, and no one can do anything about it, even the governments and licensing bodies,
2- Licensed consultants or other legal professionals involved in unethical and illegal advice or practice,
3- Licensed consultants or other legal professionals being duped by agents and ghost consultants.
There are other activities and tools happening in the scope of our practice, such as unexpected activities and responses from government agencies or offices, so let’s share this information as well; it may assist your colleagues to mend their communication for the client’s best interest.
For example, you may have experience and interaction with staff of your license-issuing body, such as a law society or federal or provincial regulatory body, and you want to share your experience—we have a blog/forum page for that as well. Feel free to express your experience and opinion.
