Welcome to the DRLA

 

The DRLA was established in 1879 as the voice of lawyers in Durham Region Ontario. Located in Oshawa, Ontario, at the new courthouse, DRLA serves over 380 lawyers both within Durham and throughout the GTA and beyond. We are located on the ground floor. Our library provides lockers and a lounge area for our members and out of town lawyers. We have a rich collection of books and access to law databases. All our computers are wireless and we provide WIFI access in the library and lounge areas.
DRLA strives to meet the needs of all lawyers. We are ever evolving balancing books and technology in our library. We are a private library for the use of its members, and lawyers of the Law Society of Ontario. We organize continuing education seminars on topics of importance to the local Bar, and fabulous social events with innovative guest speakers. Events such as Murder Mystery Nights, Monthly Fat Friday Breakfast, Holiday Luncheons, Dance Galas, AGM, and our highly anticipated annual golf tournament help our members stay connected and provide opportunities for networking and friendship.
Our association newsletter, the Durlaw Voice is published biannually and we encourage all members to share their knowledge. The newsletter not only keeps the members apprised of news and events in the legal community, but also strives to tackle important substantive legal issues with feature articles written by local experts and the occasional guest contributor. We encourage all lawyers in Durham Region to become members of this vibrant organization.
PLEASE NOTE THE LIBRARIAN DOES NOT PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE AND CANNOT RECOMMEND A LAWYER TO YOU.
