aw Week is a national event held annually celebrating the signing of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Originated by the Canadian Bar Association and first held in Canada in 1983, Law Week provides the public with an opportunity to learn about the law and some of the legal institutions that form the cornerstones of Canadian democracy. It also provides the profession with an opportunity to educate the public about the vital role lawyers and the judiciary play in guaranteeing an open, independent and unbiased judicial system.
