Library Christmas Party
Wednesday, December 19th (date change)
All Day!
MLA Practice Resource Centre

We changed our minds and changed the date originally advertised in the November newsletter. Please join us on Wednesday, December 19th for the library's annual fest. There will be coffee, there may be hot apple cider and there will definitely be a huge selection of cookies, tarts and squares all baked by your MLA library staff. Best of all, it runs all day so there's plenty of opportunity for you to come by and enjoy some treats. It's our way of thanking you for using the library in 2018 and for us to get our baking done.

CPD-Save the Dates

Please check here regularly for dates of upcoming MLA-CPD seminars. As well, we we will provide links to some non-MLA CPD seminars that will be held in the London area. For those links, registrations should be placed with the body organizing the event as these are not Middlesex Law Association seminars.

  • 14th Annual Straight From The Bench Conference - Monday, May 6, 2019, Doubletree Hilton. Details to follow in the new year.
