It is difficult to imagine a Supreme Court of Canada without Beverley McLachlin. For 17 years, she was the court’s rudder, steadying it in choppy legal waters...

No one knows yet how the post-McLachlin court will function – whether it will be more activist or less, whether it will maintain its recent habit of collegiality or deliver more split decisions.

Ryerson’s revised law school proposal comes after an earlier curriculum — which got the go-ahead from the Law Society of Ontario and Federation of Law Societies of Canada — was refused program approval by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

AI is changing the stereotypical image of the beleaguered coffee-serving, briefcase-bearing lackey associates who spend long hours in windowless deal rooms figuring out where to start due diligence for a merger or acquisition...

Things you might not have caught are more likely to come to your attention.
Quite apart from their functional utility, investing in AI has become an important talent attraction and retention tool for law firms... Firms are signalling to associates and recruits that it is looking to the future by investing in tools that will attract clients and help them stay ahead of the game.
