Calling all Toronto Lawyers - Together We Can Feed the Hungry for $5 each month!
Toronto lawyers can provide much needed stability to the Feed the Hungry program so that it is never at risk again. If every Toronto lawyer contributes $5 each month, the program could be sustained at its current level of service without any additional fundraising initiatives. Click here for a message from the Law Society Foundation including a link to their donation website.
A myriad of information sources are available to members of the profession. Our state-of-the-art legal Library at 361 University Ave. provides an extensive collection of printed and electronic sources of legal information. Our monthly Toronto Law Journal discusses current legal issues, by prominent authors. The TLA Newsletter, distributed quarterly, provides our members with important information on the Association and its many activities.
The Association provides educational programs for all members of the Ontario bar, many of these programs certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada to provide CPD credit. Our Nutshell programs are designed to provide quick, current and relevant information on a variety of legal issues, featuring distinguished speakers. Our Library programs equip professional lawyers and articling students with the mechanics of legal research, including use of electronic resources.
While involved in innumerable community activities, the Association represents our members to the Ontario bench and bar, to all levels of government and to the public at large. We participate in charitable events, liaise with other professional lawyers' associations, provide educational mock trials at local public schools and sit on committees related to legal and courthouse issues.
