Founded in 1948, the Lord Reading Law Society is the collective voice of Jewish jurists in Quebec.

We are dedicated to the furtherance of human rights and fundamental freedoms, and aim to serve the legal community, the Jewish community and the community at large.

In addition to our defence of human rights, the Society is best known for its dinners, which feature prominent speakers from the judiciary and academia, as well as from law firms, politics and the world of business. The Society’s events have become an integral part of the calendar of Montreal’s legal community.
