Salon VISEZ DROIT offers four days of justice-themed activities organized for the general public by the Bar of Montreal. Their goal is to inform and educate the public about individual rights and obligations and to promote a better understanding of the legal system.

Most popular without doubt are the free legal consultations. Want advice on writing a will, ways to collect debts, the steps to follow when starting up a company or arranging a merger? There’s never a shortage of questions. It’s a great learning opportunity, offered to the public at no charge. During last year's event, nearly 1,000 free, private consultations were given by lawyers from the Bar of Montreal. Bring your documents.
