Statistical Snapshot of Lawyers from the Lawyer Annual Report (LAR) 2014
The Law Society of Upper Canada has been collecting self-identification data in the Lawyer Annual Report since 2009. The structure of the survey at the time permitted the lawyer to opt to pass over the question and provide no response. This option has been modified so that, while a lawyer can still decline to self-identify, the person must now so indicate by expressly entering this response.
The response rate for each question is as follows:
|Able to provide legal services in French||85.8%|
Race and Aboriginal

Note: Compared to population estimates, the number of lawyers self-reporting disability is inexplicably low. Further sampling over time may have to be conducted.
