LSSA publishes PoPIA guide for attorneys

The Law Society has published guidelines for attorneys on the Protection of Personal Information Act.  The guide and checklist is a basic guide to PoPIA and is not definitive.

Practitioners are required to apply their mind to the practice, the clients, the nature of legal services and the transaction conducted. This will be unique to each practice.

The LSSA guide on POPIA which was updated in 2018 has not been removed from the resources on the website as it contains essential information on more complex practices and considerations and is recommended that practitioners consult this resource when in doubt.
