Lax O’Sullivan Lisus Gottlieb believes in giving back to the community. We’ve played a leadership role in a variety of community and charitable organizations.
Our partners and associates are also committed to contributing to the legal profession. Many of our lawyers have served as presidents and board members of The Advocates’ Society and have sat on a range of committees including the Chief Justice of Ontario’s Advisory Committee on Professionalism, the Ontario E-Discovery Implementation Committee, the Commercial List Users’ Committee, the Civil Justice Review, the Ontario Bar Association, and others.
We teach at law schools, lecture at continuing legal education programs, and write and speak about issues of significance to the profession on a regular basis. In addition, LOLG is proud to be a donor of a bursary granted each year to a student of Osgoode Hall Law School. Established in the early years of the Firm, the bursary has assisted many students over the years to focus their efforts on their studies and extracurricular involvements despite the rising cost of law school tuition and assists students who might not otherwise attend law school without financial assistance.
In addition, LOLG contributes to the Canadian Civil Liberties Education Trust, which permits it to work in courtrooms, classrooms and parliament, to advance and protect civil liberties in Canada.
We proudly support Young Women in Law (YWL), a not-for-profit organization that provides support to young women lawyers.
Our lawyers are also involved in and provide support to many non-legal, charitable and advocacy organizations including:
- Board of Governors, Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre
- Pro Bono Ontario
- Pro Bono Services to Furniture Bank
- Divisional Court Amicus program
- Law Help Ontario Duty Counsel project
- Barbra Schlifer Clinic – Fundraising Committee
- Hull-Ellis Concussion and Research Clinic – Patient Advisory Committee
