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. The following discussion points may be worthy of a few minutes of time with your clients.
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_Kristal-Bayes.jpgGreetings from Winnipeg and Happy New Year to all. 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.

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.

Is Google search evidence admissible?

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_BH-Shirt-and-Jacket.jpgAssessing and searching for evidence and facts constitute a significant part of lawyers’ roles in representing clients. While litigators probably utilize these functions much more intensively than do solicitors, it is likely a matter of degree and extent.
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_tonywilson.jpgLawyers of a certain age will remember a case of the British Columbia Court of Appeal called Vander Zalm v. Times Publishers, where then-Minister of Human Resources for B.C., Bill Vander Zalm, was the subject of a scathing political cartoon drawn by Robert Bierman, depicting Vander Zalm happily pulling the wings off flies.
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Standard_photos_Dudley-Hilary.jpgRegulators on both sides of the border have made it a priority to try to police complex insider trading schemes. The aggressive approach by the Ontario Securities Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and in particular the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York has yielded stunning headlines over the last few years, but 2014 was marked by a series of setbacks in insider trading enforcement.

I am a firm believer that one should stop doing something that’s rewarding before passion turns into rote.

The ‘Voldemort’ season

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_tonywilson.jpgI am so glad it’s over. You know, that “season” I’m not supposed to mention by name, lest it offend someone.
