Message from the President

We have a wonderful and outstanding law association. But don’t take my word for it. Visit. Explore. Call. Write. Participate. It almost sounds like a pitch for a faraway tourist attraction except it is right here in your backyard.

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...
