Corporations, government departments and agencies, and law firms are invited to become partners of the website. Partners are asked to direct part of their legal work, or referral/conflict work in the case of law firms, to women- and minority-owned law firms.

Following the lead of the National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) in the United States, we suggest that a target of 5 per cent of a company’s outside legal spend or of a firm’s referral work is a workable goal.

For information on becoming a partner of cwmlf.ca, please contact Joy Casey at 416-368-3847 or jcasey@idirect.com.
