    Law Schools in the International Sphere: The University of Montreal Experience

    Law schools have historically been deeply anchored in their local communities. They train jurists who serve, and often lead, these communities. They operate legal clinics that seek to help the most vulnerable members of society. They produce research that, hopefully, improve the legal frameworks governing the life of citizens and the fate of organizations.

    But over the years, many law schools have broadened, or pluralized, their definition of the word “community.” Even if it is a cliché to say so, the world has shrunk. As a result, not only are law schools increasingly active on the world stage, the world . . . [more]

    Some Legal Aid Can Never Be Costed

    The recent release of the provincial budget in Ontario has many lawyers livid over the proposed cuts to Legal Aid, which amount to almost 30% of its funding. The cuts relate to broader reductions to the justice sector of approximately 2%, from?$5.0 billion in 2018–19 to $4.7 billion in 2021–22.

    These cuts may appear to stem from what appears to be higher figures for actual “Other Non-Tax Revenue,” which includes legal aid, from the interim projections for the 2018-2019 year, suggesting some concern that these expenses have been growing unsustainably. But a closer look at these figures suggests there . . . [more]

    On Masks and the Practice of Law

    Bob wears masks. As he enters a client meeting he digs into his vast collection and dons his client-facing mask. He straightens up and greets his client with a familiar smile. He speaks in a soothing, rhythmic cadence. He maintains utter composure as his client flails about, in turns lost, angry, and pleading. When the meeting is over Bob takes a deep breath. As he returns to his office it occurs to him that of all his masks, this is the one that never seems to fit quite right. It’s a good time for a coffee and a stroll before . . . [more]

    Tom Bruce, Pioneer of the Free Access to Law Movement, Retiring From Cornell in June

    Tom Bruce, who helped launch the Legal Information Institute (LII) at Cornell University in 1992, will be retiring as its director at the end of June 2019.

    LII is the mother of all the “little” LIIs (like CanLII here in Canada), websites in dozens of countries that make legal information available for free to citizens. They all form part of the wonderful Free Access to Law Movement.

    In his goodbye message, Bruce writes:

    “Most of all, I am proud of all of the things that the LII has become, of all of the ways in which it has

    The title of this post stands for Artificial Intelligence for Access to Justice. It sounds a little like buzzword festival. Rest assured however – there is no mention whatsoever of block chain or design thinking further down in the text.

    Thomson Reuters Drops High Profile Albeit Marginal Titles

    Thomson Reuters is quietly moving out of smaller businesses that do not have opportunities for significant revenue growth. It has really been only a matter of time.

    The titles in question are well known in the Canadian legal publishing community for quality content but just don’t cut it from the perspective of the Thomson business model and its expectations of significant growth in the top and bottom line. As of April 1, HAB Press acquired the Lexpert, Canadian Lawyer, Canadian Lawyer InHouse, Canadian Law List, Law Times, Canadian HR Reporter and Canadian Occupational Safety media brands, including the digital, print, . . .

    Microsoft Support for Windows 7 Ends Jan 2020

    The issue

    Microsoft supports its operating systems for only a fixed period of time after that version is replaced. For Windows 7 support ends in January 2020.

    Why does it matter?

    Microsoft will no longer provide bug fixes or security updates. And no longer provide technical support. Continuing to use Windows 7 after that date thus carries a higher risk of security problems and software incompatibility problems. About 40% of PC’s still use Windows 7, so a lot of computers need to be updated.

    What do you need to do about it?

    January 2020 sounds like it is a . . . [more]
