Become a Member
We offer several membership categories based on your current practice. Memberships are for the calendar year, regardless of when you join, and must be renewed in January of each year. Lawyers who have been members of the MLA for 45 years are granted Honourary Member status and do not pay annual dues. There is a Half-Year rate for lawyers new to the MLA who join after June 30th.
Regular Member Rate
Applies to all lawyers who were called to the bar prior to 2022.
New Call (2022–2023) Rate
Applies to all lawyers called to the bar in either 2022 or 2023.
Applies to MLA members who have retired from the practice of law but who would still like to retain their membership benefits.
Applies to LSO members who have not practiced law for at least 12 months prior to payment.
Parental Leave Rate
Applies to MLA members who will not be practicing law, due to the arrival of a child. This reduced rate will apply for one year only. If you will be off work for most of 2023, you can pay the reduced rate this year. If you go on leave later this year and paid the full rate for 2023, you will be eligible to use the Parental Leave rate for 2024.
Half-Year Rate (July-Dec of current year ONLY)
Applies to LSO members who would normally be at the Regular Member rate but who are joining the MLA after June 30th of the current year ONLY.
Honourary Member Rate
Honourary Member status is automatically bestowed upon lawyers who have belonged to the Middlesex Law Association for 45 years and is based upon our membership records. Honourary members do not pay annual dues and have full membership privileges. However, if the Honourary Member has a locker at the courthouse, rental payment is still due.
The MLA will be implementing a paralegal membership category in the coming months. Our MLA membership approved this change at the February 2023 Annual General Meeting. Please join our mailing list and watch for an announcement coming soon.
Payment can be made by credit card online, e-transfer (email@example.com), or by cheque to Middlesex Law Association.
