Report on FOLA's November Plenary Now Available!
From November 7th through November 9th, 2018, Law Association Presidents, Law Association delegates and Law Association Library staff members in Waterloo, ON to attend FOLA’s Fall Plenary. Guests heard from notable key note speakers such as Ontario’s Attorney General, the Honourable Caroline Mulroney, Law Society of Ontario Treasurer Malcolm Mercer, Law Society of Ontario Bencher Joe Groia, and Ottawa Lawyer Steve Kelly, and your FOLA Executive.
