The Advocates’ Society was formed on 20 November 1963, with the intention of being a forum for discussion, education and fellowship among advocates. The first meeting was held on 17 May 1965, at which John J. Robinette became the first president. The Society’s mission is to provide a voice for advocates in Ontario, promote ethical and professional standards, teach skills, maintain the independence of the Bar and Judiciary, and to foster collegiality among advocates. The Society owns and operates Sir William Campbell House and produces the Advocates' Society Journal among other publications.
