Our August issue includes our most popular story of the year — the Top 25 Most Influential — where we take stock of the lawyers, judges and others in the legal profession who are having an impact. This is my first year overseeing the process from beginning to end — observing the reaction to last year’s list (when I first started at Canadian Lawyer), seeking nominations for this year, encouraging lawyers from across the country to vote, selecting the finalists and then deciding what to highlight about their impressive accomplishments.

Show me the (laundered) money

Our June issue of Canadian Lawyer has a money theme. We publish our annual Legal Fees Survey in this issue, which we hope will help lawyers and law firms better understand how their fees compare to their competition. Often, lawyers make these business decisions based on little to no data, and our survey is meant to help address that.

The solution to court delays

Did the Supreme Court of Canada help anything when it released R. v. Jordan last July, giving courts a timeline before criminal charges are stayed due to delay? Regardless of how you answer that question, you can’t deny that the decision has had an effect. The SCC essentially launched a grenade into the debate about trial delays and how to fix them.

When we look back at 2017, will we describe it as an age of anxiety? It certainly feels that way at the moment.

The culture of entrepreneurs

Every year, we at Canadian Lawyer aim to connect with law firms and lawyers across the country in person to find out what is happening in their world. Last fall, I travelled to Nova Scotia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. My colleagues went to Quebec and B.C. and we all meet with many lawyers at our home base in Ontario. In our daily reporting, we speak and correspond with lawyers in other regions on a regular basis as well.

What’s fair? It depends

Lawyers are often criticized for a lack of decisiveness. When clients come seeking legal advice, what they are often looking for is strategic advice, and a muddled answer can drive clients crazy. They may ask a lot of questions, but “what should I do?” is usually the most important one, and “it depends” is most often not the answer they want.

Canada’s excellent justice system

Canadian lawyers often complain about our justice system, as they should. There are countless problems that need fixing, both large and small. Our governments have severely underfunded legal aid, indigenous people are incarcerated at a disproportionate rate, the courts are run with antiquated paper-based technology and millions of Canadians can’t afford to pay for proper legal advice.

Innovation is not progress

The word innovation has become the biggest buzzword of our time, and nowhere is this more evident than in the area of technology.
