Lawrence Ben-Eliezer graduated from the University of Calgary Faculty of Law in 1987 and was called to the Bar in Ontario in March 1989. He has been in private practice since that time and concentrated his practice in the fields of criminal defence and civil litigation.
Lawrence has appeared before every level of court in Ontario, including the Court of Appeal. He has defended individuals charged with a wide variety of offences, including allegations of domestic violence and sexual misconduct.
He is also a regular member of the Legal Panel on the John Oakley Show and can be heard every Wednesday morning on Talk Radio AM640.
Lawrence is a strong advocate of the rule of law and a principled approach to the administration of justice. He believes that politics should be kept away from the courtroom and that society should insist that those who are charged with criminal offences are entitled to a fair trial that is free from the effects of institutionalized biases.
