Administrative History
The Lawyers Club was formed as a corporation under letters patent in 1922. Membership was opened to all male, white, Christian barristers and solicitors less than 40 years of age at the time of application who were nominated by a member in good standing. Since then, the restrictions on membership have been opened up considerably. The restriction which required members be white and Christian was removed in 1952, and women were admitted as members in 1974. Judges, magistrates and masters are also now eligible for membership. Its stated purposes at the time of its formation included the promotion of legal development and reform, defense of the traditions of the profession, and the encouragement of a spirit of comradeship among the members. Today the emphasis of the Club's activities is more focused on providing opportunities for members to socialize and hear speakers. The Club has a long tradition of inviting noted lawyers and judges, and those from other walks of life, from Ontario and beyond to speak on topics of interest to the profession. Other events include regular dinner meetings, an annual dinner dance, judges night, and "beef" night, where roasts of beef are awarded to the members who present the best "beefs" and a turkey to those less inspired. The officers of the Club have included many of the most prominent members of the Toronto Bar, including the Honourable Roland Michener, Mr. Justice J.C. McRuer, Henry Borden, and F.A. Brewin. According to the Club's bylaw #1, enacted on February 22, 1992, the board of trustees was to be made up of the nine men present at the first meeting, and they were to elect a president, secretary, and treasurer from amongst themselves. Bylaw #13 (undated) indicated that the trustees were to select three of their own members to be automatically elected for the ensuing year. The remaining six trustees were to be elected at the annual meeting. The position of vice-president was created at a meeting of May 1, 1924, catering chairmanon January 12, 1943, and the secretary's position was split into corresponding and membership secretaries on April 9, 1953. The present charter of the Club outlines that its affairs are to be managed by a board of ten trustees, six of whom are elected at the annual meeting by a general vote of the membership, three of whom are nominated by the then present board of trustees from amongst themselves, and the immediate past president is an ex officio member of the board, the tenth. The six elected trustees are then elected into the following officers’ positions: president, vice-president, treasurer, corresponding secretary, membership secretary, and catering chair.
