Statistical Snapshot of Lawyers from the Lawyer Annual Report (LAR) 2014

View the Snapshot Fact Sheet (PDF)

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:

Aboriginal 89%
Racialized 77.5%
Sexual orientation 82.1%
Francophone 90.6%
Able to provide legal services in French 85.8%
Disability 85%
Gender 100%
