The Cook Islands Law Society is established by the Law Practitioners Act 1993-94 (Act). The Act and its amendments provide for the functions of the Law Society, admission procedures for barristers and solicitors, disciplinary, and trust account obligations and the establishment of a Council of the Law Society. It also provides for a Code of Ethics.
Lawyers are admitted to practice in the Cook Islands by application to the Chief Justice who determines the application. On admission lawyers are automatically members of the Law Society and are issued a practicing certificate on application to the Law Society Council and the payment of the annual fee.
The Law Society Council is elected by its members at the annual general meeting. The President and Vice-President are elected and the Secretary and Treasurer positions are filled by appointment.
