“… to encourage the interchange of ideas and co-operation between women with legal training.”

Laura Denton Duff and Helen Currie gather together a handful of young women lawyers and law students in the offices of Frank Denton, K.C., Laura’s father. They create the Women’s Law Association of Ontario. Barred from professional organizations, the WLAO’s monthly meetings provided the sole source of continuing legal education for women lawyers. This is a toast card from a dinner held in 1927.
