Last week, Ontario Trial Lawyers Association’s (OTLA) Board of Directors voted to endorse the candidacy of Greg Monforton and three other OTLA members for the 2023 LSO Bencher election.
OTLA has a history of endorsing OTLA members who sought elections as Benchers of the Law Society of Ontario. OTLA wants to ensure that issues that concern the personal injury bar are heard at Convocation.
Greg Monforton and OTLA share the goal of continued self-regulation of the legal profession in Ontario in the public interest. They also share the goal of encouraging more voter turnout, as this is a critical election.
