On October 15th, Treasurer Donnelly attended our Board of Trustees meeting. Treasurer Donnelly has shown herself to be a supporter of courthouse libraries and law associations in Ontario, believing in their importance to the profession and the public of Ontario. Treasurer Donnelly’s attendance was greatly appreciated by our Board, and we would like to thank her for attending.
At Convocation that took place on October 28th, 2021, The Law Society of Ontario approved the Legal Information and Resource Network 2022 budget as submitted by the LiRN Board. The approved budget reinstated The Hamilton Law Association grant at the 2020 grant amount, plus an additional five percent increase. This is wonderful news for the HLA that will have a significant, positive impact on our staffing and collection for the 2022 year.
We would like to thank Treasurer Teresa Donnelly and Convocation for reinstating our grant and the appreciated increase, which will enable us to better serve the lawyers of Hamilton. Additionally, we would also like to thank our Regional Bencher, Andrew Spurgeon, who spoke eloquently and in-favor of reinstating the LiRN funding.
We look forward to maintaining our high level of service and support to our membership and the Hamilton law community at large.
