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

An estate trustee who took an ‘egregious' position in litigation has been ordered to personally pay more than $140,000 in costs. Will this ruling serve as an appropriate caution to executors on how they conduct themselves in litigation?
Yes, this will remind trustees of the potential exposure of significant awards being made against them personally.
No, it’s unlikely this ruling will dissuade executors from engaging in unreasonable conduct during litigation.
