Strategic Direction


Lawyers told us what they need—and those needs are consistent across all jurisdictions and demographic groups. As a result, our strategic direction aims to be more member-centric to put your needs at the heart of what we do.

Our goal? To connect lawyers and potential members to the people, knowledge, and skills they need to help them successfully practice law in Canada.
