Doing business with a lawyer

Laws and Regulations

The Barreau’s activities and the practice of the profession are governed by laws and regulations that the Barreau has gathered and made available to you in the Recueil de documentation professionnelle.

The Recueil de documentation professionnelle is a tool to guide you through all the laws and regulations that prescribe what the Barreau does and how lawyers must practice the profession.

The Recueil de documentation professionnelle, which is updated annually, includes the following:

  • The Act respecting the Barreau du Québec
  • The Professional Code
  • The Code of Professional Conduct of Lawyers
  • The Regulation respecting the application of the Act respecting legal aid and the provision of certain other legal services
  • The Règlement sur la comptabilité et les normes d’exercice professionnel des avocats
