Who We Are


  The Saskatchewan Trial Lawyers Association (STLA) is a non-profit voluntary legal assocation. Since inception, we continue to strive to meet our objectives that were first set forth in 1985:

  • to uphold and defend the tenets of democracy
  • to promote the administration of justice for the public good
  • to advance the cause of those who are damaged in person or property and who must seek redress
  • to uphold and improve the adversary system and trial by jury
  • to advance the science of jurisprudence
  • to train in all fields and phases of advocacy
  • to uphold the honour and dignity of the profession of law
  • to encourage collegiality among the members of the bar

  Our membership is very broad-based, open to lawyers both inside and outside the province of Saskatchewan, and also to articling students, Judges, and non-lawyers in special categories. Our lawyers members practice in many areas, from family and employment law to criminal defence and personal injury litigation. We are united with the goals of protecting rights, ensuring access to the courts, preserving the jury system and maintaining the highest of standards in legal education.


  We wish to thank our 300+ members for their ongoing support, and welcome all those interested in becoming part of this vibrant and important organization.
