Festive anniversary evening

To celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Barreau de Montréal in style, members and the public are invited to a cocktail reception full of surprises at the historic Bonsecours Market.

A fundraising event will be organized for the benefit of food banks, and you can also bring in non-perishable goods.

Free legal consultations

As part of its festivities, the Barreau de Montréal is offering the public free legal consultations at Bonsecours Market on May 31 and June 1, 2024. The aim of this initiative is to facilitate access to justice by offering fast, free legal advice.

Attorneys on hand to answer questions from the public in a variety of legal fields, from family law to employment law.

Our jurists have talent

From May 30 to June 1, 2024, the Bar of Montreal is organizing an exhibition showcasing the artistic talent of our Section’s jurists.

The artworks will be on display at Bonsecours Market, with free admission for all on May 31 from 12 pm to 7 pm and on June 1 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Fun and educational capsules

From January to May 2024, a series of publications will be broadcast on our social media.

The « Le saviez-vous ? » (Did you know ?) capsules offer an exclusive look at facts, anecdotes and initiatives of the Bar of Montreal. As for the « Qui suis-je ? » (Who am I ?), capsules present emblematic figures who have shaped our history.

Marathon juridique

Held simultaneously at 55 points of justice across Quebec, the Legal Marathon takes place from March 21 to 23, 2024.

The Barreau de Montréal, representing nearly 17,000 members, is offering a series of activities:

  • Conferences dedicated to seniors on topics that concern them.
  • Meetings in schools on the island of Montreal with students to talk about subjects that affect them on a daily basis.

These initiatives are designed to strengthen the links between the legal community and the public.
