Abstract: The LAW UNION OF ONTARIO is an alternative lawyer's organization seeking to ensure social justice. The LAW UNION sponsors conferences and educationals, submits briefs, publishes the Law Union News quarterly and The Immigrant's Handbook.
In the past, the LAW UNION has taken positions critical of national security legislation and wiretap legislation, and in support of gay rights and trade union rights.
It was founded with the goal of working "for a society where decision making is truly democratic, where relations between persons are fraternal rather than fetishist, and where there is a constant effort to minimize economic and political inequality accompanied by a concomitant effort to promote high cultural, physical and spiritual qualities."
