Our Leadership

The Federation of Ontario Law Associations (FOLA), is an organization that represents the associations and members of the 46 local law associations across Ontario. Together with our associate member, The Toronto Lawyers Association, we represent approximately 12,000 lawyers, most of who are in private practice in firms across the province. These lawyers are on the front lines of the justice system and see its triumphs and shortcomings every day.

 

We encourage you to engage with us in a dialogue on how to make our justice system even better.
