Law Day



Law Day is celebrated annually across Canada.  Local activities celebrating the law including the OBA-OJEN Competitive Mock Trials competition, as well as an Open House at the Thunder Bay Consolidated Courthouse on Brodie Street.

Due to the covid pandemic, we had to cancel the 2020, 2021 & 2022 Law Day events.  Listed below are the events that were held this year in 2023.

Secondary School Mock Trial Competition – April 14, 2023 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm

Thunder Bay Consolidated Courthouse Open House – April 17, 2023 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm

The Thunder Bay Law Association invited the public to 125 Brodie Street N. to stroll through the consolidated courthouse on a guided tour. The tour  included courtrooms on the first and second floors, TBLA Library/Lounge and more. Members of the local judiciary and the Bar participated  in this event, but unfortunately due to a freak snowstorm that evening, only a handful of people attended this free event!  We hope to be able to offer the tours again during law Day 2024.
