Lawyers and law firms have a special connection with the art world. Lawyers represent one of the largest demographics of art buyers in Toronto and worldwide, and many law firms boast impressive collections that rival even the best museums and galleries.

The Faculty of Law Art Association (FLAA) aims to expose students to the ways in which lawyers are involved with the art industry, with a particular focus on art and artists from the Greater Toronto Area. In addition to an interest in the ways that law students can incorporate work involving the art industry in their eventual practice, the FLAA aims to connect students to the art world in ways that extend beyond a professional interest. Prospective programming includes tours of firm collections, auction preview events, talks with curators and gallerists from museums and galleries in Toronto, artists' studio tours, workshops on how to develop an eye for collecting, and ways to purchase affordable art that supports emerging artists.
