OTLA is a strong voice for access to justice for all Ontarians and for a fair insurance system in Ontario. We provide opportunities and support for all OTLA members who wish to engage in advocating for justice on behalf of their clients and the public. Read more about our efforts.

Law Student Outreach:
Each year, OTLA lawyers volunteer their time to support the development of trial skills, civility and professionalism amongst law school students by organizing the OTLA Cup, a unique and well respected moot competition. Law schools from across Ontario compete in a simulated trial which covers all aspects of a real court case. Read more about the latest OTLA Cup.
