I am a senior member of the bar of British Columbia, focusing on entertainment law; I am a member of the State Bar of California, regularly dealing with my colleagues in Hollywood; and I am a music producer and composer with a current co-write on the radio and a cue on a currently airing TV show.

We are Canadian Muslim lawyers concerned about a new spate of fear mongering reminiscent of McCarthyism being promoted through parliamentary institutions.

Ultimately, clients are coming to you for advice on how your services can support their current needs, but the product they are buying into is you.

Whether it’s our favourite political target like Stephen Harper, or an entertainer like Bill Murray, parody accounts seemingly have the ability to say publically, under a cloak of anonymity, what we would never dream of saying to someone one-on-one.

This election is about Stephen Harper

Think before you click

However, recently technology users are finding themselves wary of a newer threat: ransomware.

The Soviet Constitution of 1936 stated that citizens of the U.S.S.R. had the right to freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of conscience, and “guaranteed inviolability of the person,” adding that “no person may be placed under arrest except by decision of a court or with the sanction of a procurator.”

The great research debate: paper or pixels

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_Kristal-Bayes.jpgI have a confession to make. The last time I sat down and read an entire book cover to cover was just before I started articling — which is a shame because I thoroughly love books. This is not to say that I don’t read. In fact, a large proportion of my day, like the day of most lawyers, is spent reviewing articles, case law, legislation, and other publications on my computer screen. In other words, it’s not the activity that has changed but the medium used to do it.

Patricia Arquette must have known that when she advocated for gender wage equality during her acceptance speech after winning the Oscar for best supporting actress. Her heartfelt comments struck a chord with the audience (Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez in particular) as well as with viewers.
