Video: A walk down memory lane

As Law Times celebrates its 25th year of publishing, we talk to founding editor Jim Middlemiss about the paper's early years.

Middlemiss, who still writes about legal issues for Canadian Lawyer, talks about the niche role Law Times filled at the time as well as some of the headlines that helped the paper make its mark. They included then-deputy attorney general Mary Hogan's difficulties with her boss, attorney general Howard Hampton, as well as the fallout when police showed up at the newsroom to investigate a leaked letter the paper had received. Middlemiss also talks about some of the issues affecting the legal profession, including alternative business structures.

To watch the video, see "A walk down memory lane."

Law Times poll

Recreational marijuana use will be legalized, and lawyers say there will be an increase in terms of criminal charges and civil cases as a result. From the perspective on how this will impact the courts, do you support pot legalization?
Yes. While there will no doubt be an impact on the courts from this change, the overall social benefits of legalization are positive.
No. The move to legalize marijuana is short-sighted, and will lead to negative social results, including longer court delays.
