Founded in 1898, the Young Bar of Montreal (YBM) is a non-profit association which represents 5,000 lawyers registered in Montréal, with ten years or less of call to the Barreau du Québec. The YBM is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 15 volunteer lawyers who pursue its goals in collaboration with the committees, the permanent secretariat, and more than a hundred volunteers.
The Governors Council, represented by outstanding legal personalities and business people, ensures quality of service by acting as the YBM advisory committee.
The YBM’s mission is twofold. First, it protects and promotes the interests of its members. Second, it aims to improve access to justice by providing free legal services to the public and organizing charity events. Overall, the YBM aspires to improve access to justice and give back to the community.
Protection and promotion of the members’ interests is the priority of the Young Bar of Montreal.
