Change the Name to Ontario Justice League

This petition had 19 supporters

On September 28, 2017 the Law Society of Upper Canada (“LSUC”) voted overwhelmingly (38-11) yesterday to drop the “Upper Canada” from its name. “Upper Canada” is considered too “elite.” At the November 2017 board meeting, the benchers (the governing body of LSUC) will be voting on the new name and may even drop the “Society” from LSUC. If you are a member of LSUC urge you to vote in this poll write to your bencher and suggest that they vote to change LSUC to the “Ontario Justice League” this may rightly be considered ridiculous but any more so than changing the name of an organization which (1) has members of all shapes, genders, orientations, religions and (2) has had its name since 1797 (70 years prior to Confederation)?

Name changes are not frictionless, consider that LSUC is going to need to spend money to do a new logo, have all of their literature re-printed, change their entire website. I am sure there will also be a campaign to inform the public about the change. LSUC engaging in contact likes this is what makes our annual dues so high.
