Position Statement – Voting for Benchers of the Law Society of Ontario

To our Ontario legal community – it’s time to take a stance! The LLD wishes to draw your attention to the upcoming bencher’s election for the Law Society of Ontario (LSO). One of the central issues in this election is the LSO’s role in  addressing issues pertaining to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) that affect us all. The LLD recommends that you educate yourself on the various candidates and platforms, so as to make an informed vote.
