  • The Protecting Canadians from Online Crime Act and Law Enforcement Access to Information Held by Third Parties

    $75.00
    Today, personal information is no longer kept safely hidden away in our desks and filing cabinets. Instead, in large part due to the near-ubiquity of computers and the Internet, it seems that personal information is created by almost everything and is stored almost everywhere. This paper addresses two topics related to informational privacy concerns. First, law enforcement access to third party information using Criminal Code production orders is discussed. Within this context, R v Fedossenko, 2014 ABCA 314, is used as a case study into production orders, illustrating some of the legal and constitutional issues raised by law enforcement access to third party information. Second, the new “lawful access” provisions of the Protecting Canadians from Online Crime Act, SC 2014, c 31, are summarized and discussed.

  • Trending Issues in Search Warrant Challenges

    $65.00
    This paper addresses a number of developing issues in search warrant challenges, and explores how traditional search and seizure concepts have adapted (or not) to deal with emergent social issues, with a particular emphasis on establishing a reasonable expectation of privacy and the need for a flexible approach to respond to changing social norms. Establishing a reasonable expectation of privacy to challenge any state intrusion is discussed, with practical advice for building the evidentiary foundation. As well, police reliance on illegally obtained evidence and the principles of excision and exclusion are considered. Finally, reasonable expectations of privacy in public and common areas are discussed in the context emerging and relevant judicial decisions.

  • Violence against Women: Trading Quality for Autonomy?

    $45.00

    This paper considers the most recent substantive decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in the area of sexual assault, R. v J.A., to assess whether it continues to reflect the same commitment to understanding sexual assault as a practice of sex inequality. This paper argues that two forces threaten to undermine this understanding: first, the elision of women’s equality with individual autonomy and the concomitant impoverishment of the concept of autonomy into “choice” and, second, the disappearance of gendered violence through its normalization.

    This paper was presented at the Constitutional Law Symposium in September 2012.

  • Webinar on Demand – Drafting Effective Memos

    $95.00

    Original Date: June 8, 2020

    Presenter: Douglas H. Peterson, Douglas H. Peterson Professional Corporation

     

     

     

    Whether we like it or not, the legal memorandum remains a staple in small and large law firms alike. Oftentimes tedious and uninspiring, sometimes painful and infuriating – to both reader and writer – nonetheless, the memo is a vital tool for synthesizing and conveying the current state of the law. As a junior lawyer writing them and as a senior lawyer reading them, how can the legal memo experience be improved?

    The answer is simple: the memo must be written well. This webinar focuses on the primary tenets of the legal memo: structure, purpose, clarity, and conciseness, as well as the little big things you can learn to incorporate into your memos – style, flow, and weaving in the voice that makes you unique – that will enable you to produce your best work (and to be proud of it) and to make yours and your senior’s experience a little more enjoyable.
