Current Membership Benefits

Continuing Education

Each year, TLOMA holds a number of professional development meetings and Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings to help further the continuing education for all members. Each session focuses on providing education using experienced speakers who discuss various issues pertaining to managing a law office.  As part of your TLOMA membership fees you can attend SIG events free of charge.

Topics range from future trends in technology to Law Society policies. Past topics have included Diversity, Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, Mentoring and Leadership. Always topical, these meetings provide a forum for learning and networking.

Annual Conference

The annual educational conference is the flagship event of the TLOMA year. The Conference provides two and one-half days of stimulating educational sessions which include well known international speakers, celebrities and writers. You will enjoy networking with colleagues while you learn from specialists and take part in hands-on workshops. It is also an excellent opportunity to meet with a number of Business Partners that service the legal industry - all in a relaxing atmosphere away from the workplace.

Come and join us for the 2021 Virtual TLOMA Conference CONNECT WITH US - September 28 - 29, 2021


Business Services Survey, Associate Survey and Total Rewards Survey

The TLOMA Suite of Surveys are specific to law firms and have been developed to provide answers to our member’s questions regardless of firm size. These surveys use a Job Family and Career Level methodology that is beneficial to all firm sizes, and it provides the ability:

  • to easily match jobs;
  • to benchmark salaries with other firms of similar size;
  • to assist in managing internal pay equity for those firms that do not have a formal job evaluation/grading system; and
  • to look at trends in total rewards for both smaller and larger firms.

The survey is easily completed on one excel spreadsheet and the results are provided in electronic format.  It is an invaluable tool that can be purchased for a rate much less than industry standard.  Moreover, the cost of the survey, to you, is based on the size of your law firm.

The annual suite of Surveys are available for PARTICIPATION AND/OR purchase by members of TLOMA.   

Stay Tuned for information on the 2021 Survey!

The newsletter keeps you up-to-date on up coming TLOMA events and includes valuable articles relating to the administration of a law firm. The newsletter, TLOMA Today, is published 10 times per year, is distributed via email and is also available online under TLOMAToday.

Information Sharing

Information sharing and support can be found in many forms within TLOMA. TLOMA undertakes surveys, updates on policies and procedures and information on the ever evolving marketplace. TLOMA offers specific discussion Forums where you have the opportunity to engage in relevant communication and obtain information that might not otherwise be available to you. TLOMA also provides an opportunity to develop important relationships with others in the legal industry.


Membership ensures full access to our website which includes white papers, information regarding Business  Partners, and information from our association meetings. We continually monitor trends and revisit our on-line strategy regularly to ensure members are able to access practical information that allows them to run their offices at an optimum level.


TLOMA has two member only networking events each year:  the Spring Networking Event held in June and the Holiday Networking Event held in December. 

These events provide members the opportunity to make new acquaintances and keep in touch with other members.

At the beginning of all TLOMA meetings and events members are given the opportunity to mingle, catch up on news, and just relax. This is an ideal opportunity to meet new members and to form new friendships and associations that will provide valuable assistance when needed.

TLOMA’s Life Members are invited to attend the Holiday Season luncheon as a guest of TLOMA. Life Members are welcome to attend all other TLOMA events at their own expense.


Whether you are new in your role within the legal industry or not, TLOMA hopes you will consider engaging in our Mentor Program which was successfully launched in 2014.   The TLOMA Mentor Program is comprised of the voluntary matching of two members of TLOMA in a Mentor/Mentee relationship which promotes the sharing of wisdom, interpersonal support, guidance, coaching and role modelling.   The frequency and method of interaction will differ based on the individual needs of the Mentee as supported by the Mentor.   We hope that you will engage in the Program either as a Mentor or Mentee by submitting your Application which includes answering a brief Questionnaire.   Based on your responses to the Questionnaire, a Mentee will be matched to an appropriate Mentor which best suits your learning or developmental goals. 

The primary objective of the Mentee is to receive feedback and guidance from the Mentor and ultimately achieve insight and benefit from the knowledge of the Mentor.  This knowledge gained through coaching will assist the Mentee in meeting the challenges faced within their role.  By openly discussing issues with the Mentor, the Mentor will provide feedback and reflection setting the Mentee up for success.   The relationship will be based on mutual trust, confidentiality and discretion fostering open and honest feedback.  

The primary objective of the Mentor is to share their knowledge and expertise with their assigned Mentee and to provide a learning opportunity where they can offer candid advice, answer questions and share information that helped the Mentor earlier in their own career.   The Mentor can provide the Mentee with knowledge and experience gained from their own path to success sharing both their successes as well as their failures and missteps along the way.   The Mentor is a keen listener and will offer advice where it’s needed while seeking the input of the Mentee.  Engaging the Mentee in this manner will ensure that they have the tools as well as the knowledge necessary to confidently visualise and execute solutions to challenges faced in performing their role. 

Ultimately it is a rewarding experience for both Mentor and Mentee and a further opportunity to network with others in the Association for their mutual benefit.   Interested in finding out more or obtaining an Application?
