Judges' Dinner

The York Region Law Association will be hosting a Judges' Dinner on February 29, 2024.  This exciting event will include many of our local Judiciary from the Superior and Ontario Courts of Justice. The last few years have shifted the balance in our lives: priorities, virtual and in-person, justice & equality and balancing home and work life.  We have asked our Speakers to share some thoughts about balance.   Final Registration date February 19th

The York Region Law Association is a community focused professional organization of lawyers.

Using funds derived from membership fees and various grants, it operates and maintains the Law Association and Library, which is located at the Newmarket Courthouse.

The Association maintains standing committees which are mandated to regularly address concerns specific to the practice of law within the Region. These committees are in regular communication with the different levels of court as well as other offices and organizations.

The YRLA also organizes continuing legal education sessions and regular social functions, as well as informational and educational meetings.
