Information for the general public
- Welcome to the Law Society of Manitoba's member directory. This directory is intended to assist the public in locating a particular Manitoba lawyer or articling student. It will usually give the name, address, firm or business, telephone number and email address of Manitoba lawyers. It will tell you a lawyer's practising status and the date when they first were licensed to practise in Manitoba.

Callers are also referred to appropriate law-related agencies where such an agency exists and the situation warrants it.
