The recent wave of high profile sexual harassment allegations has suddenly and dramatically intensified the discourse over sexual harassment in the workplace. No industry has been left untouched - actors, producers, journalists, politicians, entrepreneurs, and executives have seen their behaviour take centre stage in the press and on social media. While the societal impact of these highly public cases is still playing out, one lesson is clear: sexual harassment in the workplace can have serious reputational and legal ramifications for accused individuals and companies. Lawyers counseling clients on workplace behaviour must therefore have a solid knowledge of the law relating to sexual harassment, and also an awareness of cultural shifts taking place in the workplace. Now more than ever, employers and boards of directors must clearly understand...Read More

At some point or another, even non-criminal lawyers are likely to receive a phone call from a client (or friend or relative) who has been arrested, or who has a family member who has been arrested. “What should I do?” they will ask.

If you’re a member of a fitness club or a recreational sports league, or have a school-aged child, liability waivers are a fact of life. Questions about the validity and enforceability of waivers are common - both from activity operators seeking to protect themselves from negligence claims, and from patrons who executed a waiver and were subsequently injured. Challenges to waivers, and the defence of claims involving the interpretation of waivers, require careful analysis of a number of variables. This new, 90 minute webinar is designed to introduce general practitioners, corporate counsel, and other non-personal injury specialists to this discrete area of practice. Topics include requirements of a valid liability waiver, challenges to enforceability or validity of waivers, and developing issues in the law of waivers, including waivers executed on behalf of children.

Every legal argument involves the arrangement of the facts to suit your legal purpose. We are storytellers, but unlike the fiction writer, we have ethical restraints. We can’t make up facts. And we often don’t get to write the ending - that’s for the judge or jury. But we can still use the storyteller’s tricks and techniques to our advantage. We can present our story and its characters in a way that rings true. We can make our client the hero of the story, so our audience consciously or subconsciously roots for them to succeed. We can indicate what we want to the court, without insisting upon it. Piece by piece, we can bring our listener into the world according to our client. If we can do that, our chances of winning multiply. That’s why it’s worthwhile to consider the essential elements of storytelling: plot, character, and style. The same tools that make a good fiction writer can also make you a successful lawyer....Read More
