About CBA Futures

The Canadian Bar Association launched its Legal Futures Initiative, the first comprehensive study of its kind in Canada, at the Canadian Legal Conference in Vancouver in August 2012. The first phase of the initiative – gathering research about where the legal profession stands, and talking to thought leaders about where it might be headed – is nearly complete. In June 2013 the CBA, the voice of more than 37,000 lawyers, law teachers, and law students from across Canada, launches the second phase: consulting with lawyers, clients and other stakeholders both about what they see coming and about what they think should be done about it. The goal is to lay the foundation for a new way to practice law in the next decade and beyond.
