What is The Institute of Law Clerks of Ontario and what does it do?
We are a professional association providing continuing education, fellowship and networking for its members. ILCO was incorporated in May 1968 for the purpose of providing an organized network for the promotion of unity, cooperation and mutual assistance among Law Clerks in Ontario. ILCO strives to advance and protect the status and interests of the profession. In addition, it is the mandate of ILCO to provide and promote general and legal education to its members for the purpose of increasing their knowledge, efficiency and professional ability.
The Law Society of Upper Canada established the name "Law Clerk" and permitted use of this title to members of ILCO in 1968.
