Associates make partner and general changes happen at the beginning of the year. I make it a habit to review our firm’s online profiles and update them so they are search optimized.

It’s the question every criminal lawyer has been asked more than any other (after “Why did it cost that much?”): “How can you defend a person you know to be guilty?” And my answer is always that it’s really not that hard, relatively speaking.

How to join your first board

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Standard_photos_Lisa_Feldstein.JPGI previously wrote an article about how to break into the field of health law.

I am excited to have the opportunity to share my experiences as a newly minted lawyer as I transition from an articling student to a practising lawyer. For those of you in the same shoes, I hope you’ll be able to relate to the trials and triumphs I share with you over the next 12 months.

Practising outside the technology box

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_Lisa-Lifshitz.jpgTechnology lawyers often think of themselves as area experts, with a deep appreciation and understanding of the specific intricacies of their craft and its sub-specialties, which may include outsourcing, e/m commerce, licensing, CASL-compliance, cloud computing, etc. However, good technology lawyers can sometimes add value to their clients simply by thinking outside the technology box by raising practical issues that go beyond our immediate practice areas.

Children’s voices — are we listening?

Written by
Children have the right to be heard in matters affecting them. This right, which is set out in Art. 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, arises in many contexts. Recently it was noted as one of four foundational principles in dealings with children in the immigration context in an advisory opinion from the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
