October 2nd marked the first annual Wrongful Conviction Day by the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted. Kabeer Sethi spoke with the organizers of the event including Ron Dalton, president of AIDWYC and the victims of wrongful conviction about the need to address this issue worldwide.
This November, the Law Society will put on a special call to the bar ceremony for about 60 law students killed during the First World War. Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP partner Patrick Shea talks about why he undertook the project to honour those who never became lawyers.
John Tory isn't the only lawyer in the race to be Toronto's next mayor. Although he's far from being a leading candidate in the race against Rob Ford, Ari Goldkind showed his wit at a campaign event last week when he declared: "I'd rather see a lawyer running for mayor than a mayor running to his lawyer." He tells Law Times' Yamri Taddese why he's running for the city's top municipal job.
While he was most memorable as finance minister, Jim Flaherty was also a prominent lawyer and, of course, Ontario's attorney general. With coverage from Flaherty's state funeral last week, reporter Yamri Taddese also talks to his former law partner about his career as a lawyer.

Law Times poll

A Law Times column examines whether the Law Society of Upper Canada should change its name to the Law Society of Ontario, in light of different social changes, such as the Truth and Reconciliation Committee’s Calls to Action. Should LSUC change its name?
Yes, it’s time for LSUC to catch up with the times, and update its name.
No, the name of the LSUC is appropriate, and changing it would not accomplish much.
