History Biographical
The Lord Reading Law Society was founded as a vehicle for lawyers of the Jewish faith "both as a study group and as a representative body." The Society was named after Rufus Daniel Isaacs, a British jurist who later became Lord Reading. The political and social climate of the late 1930s and early 1940s was the impetus for the creation of Society. The Society first formalized its structure in 1948 and has been meeting regularly since then. The first president was the late Mr. Justice Benjamin Robinson. Originally the Society was known as the Reading Society. It changed its name to the Reading Society of Montreal on September 25, 1952. It is not certain exactly when the society changed its name to the Lord Reading Law Society, possibly in 1958.
