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."

Yes, there are ongoing criminal cases involving journalists doing their jobs, that concern me.
No, considering the international climate, Canada is a free, fair and open place when it comes to press freedom.
