Amendment of LSO Articling Procedures for Hamilton To Be Approved as Requested

Posted on: Dec 17, 2018

The Hamilton Law Association forwarded a request to The Law Society of Ontario earlier this year to amend their articling recruitment procedures, specifically those related to Hamilton. We have received notice that the LSO intends to amend the 2020-2021 articling procedures so that Hamilton is brought into alignment with the dates and times of all other firms in Ontario, outside of Toronto and Ottawa. This means that all Hamilton firms are permitted to make offers of employment to articling candidates on the same day, in this case three weeks earlier than in previous years, as other firms in the province.

Please read communication letter HERE.

In advanced of the articling recruitment calendar, please remember that any articling position available in Hamilton can be advertised on the Association’s website for free, specifically under our Articling in Hamilton tab. To submit an available articling posting, please contact Marica Piedigrossi at mpiedigrossi@hamiltonlaw.on.ca for more information and to advertise.

Message from the President

I am extremely pleased and excited to be the Hamilton Law Association’s 77th President. Having spent 13 years prior in various roles and positions volunteering with the HLA, it is truly rewarding and fulfilling to now lead the organization for the coming term.

As a solicitor, I acknowledge that some of the membership may not have had a chance to meet me, so please allow me to spend a brief part of this opening article to introduce myself, in the hope that it may set us off on the right path to knowing each other a little better. CONTINUE READING


Mark Giavedoni, President 2019-2020

The Hamilton Law Association

The Association’s affairs are governed by trustees and officers who ensure that Association undertakings are within the mandate and in the best interests of our legal community. The many valued volunteers who are members of the numerous committees within the structure of the HLA strive to represent our membership consistently and effectively. The Anthony Pepe Memorial Law Library, operated within the scope of the HLA, is one of the largest law libraries in Ontario and houses over 30,000 volumes.

The Hamilton Law Association continues to strive to educate and support its membership in the practice of law as well as to advocate for their interests as lawyers...

The staff of the Hamilton Law Association (HLA) Library cannot provide legal advice or research to members of the public directly. The HLA Library is a private library for the use of its members, and members of the Law Society of Upper Canada only. For information on finding legal help in Ontario please try the Bora Laskin Law Library's Guide to Finding Legal Help in Ontario, or to search for a lawyer practising in the Hamilton area try the HLA Find a Lawyer page.
