Can You Afford to Drop the Yellow Pages?

Kirkpatrick Creative, an advertising agency representing law firms, says probably not. Not surprisingly, it seems that print yellow page phone books still work.

Enforcing Agreements and Determinations in Parenting Coordination

Enforcing agreements and orders, those relating to parenting anyway, is difficult enough in family law disputes. Enforcing agreements and determinations in the context of parenting coordination, whose users are preternaturally predisposed to conflict, is another problem of another magnitude altogether.

In general, agreements reached in the parenting coordination process can be enforced like any other family law agreement, either under the law of contracts, which can be a bit cumbersome, or under whatever specific provisions may be available under the local family law legislation for the enforcement of agreements. (In most cases, agreements filed in court can be enforced as . . . [more]

Accommodating Employees With Disabilities: What You Donat Know Can Hurt You!

Written by Daniel Standing LL.B., Editor, First Reference Inc.

Employers of workers with disabilities need to know the ins and outs of their duty to accommodate. The law intends the accommodation process to be collaborative, allowing the employer, union and employee the ability to make suggestions, compromise and, hopefully, arrive at a mutually agreeable solution. In Singh v Dodd’s Furniture (No. 2), 2021 BCHRT 85, the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal found that a furniture store discriminated against its worker after it received some bad advice about how to go about accommodating him. The furniture store made an aill-informed . . . [more]

What Does a User Centred Design Court Form Look Like?

In the article “What does a user-centered eviction court summons look like?”, Margaret Hagan answers this question. Her analysis can be applied to most court forms. The key design principles outlined are as follows:

  • Have a clear visual hierarchy. Put the first and second most important information in large boxes, with icons, indented lists, and images.
  • Make it easily readable. Use small blocks of text and short sentences. Follow plain language. Use lists where possible. Bold each paragraph’s take away.
  • Use symbols and images when possible. Be sure to have a court logo or seal to impart that

    Protect Afghanistanas Truth-Tellers: Human Rights Defenders in a World of Diplomatic Doublespeak

    In 2021 the world has witnessed the abject failure of international organizations to curtail even the most grave human rights violations, including war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide (aatrocity crimesa). The situation in Afghanistan is one case in point.

    In countries around the globe, international human rights law is routinely violated with impunity. Many are wondering what ahuman rightsa mean when politicians and diplomats toss out the term with ease while remaining reckless or complicit in the face of human rights violations and atrocities.

    Judges Need Better Computers

    For all of the emphasis on technology during the pandemic, there are still some basic fundamentals that need to be addressed to bring the justice system in Canada into the 21st century.

    In Ontario, the provincial government has commenced a process last year to “modernize” the justice system, introducing electronic filing for over 400 court documents, a cloud-based e-hearing platform, and greater use of virtual hearings. Earlier this year, they passed new legislation for further changes, with the Attorney General stating,

    Civil Procedure and Practice in Ontario: A New, Comprehensive and Free Guide

    Noel Semple, General Editor

    The free access to law movement has made impressive strides in 30 years. It is now taken for granted that all primary law and most reasons for decision are freely available online. In Canada, CanLII has been at the forefront of this movement. Funded by Canadian lawyers, CanLII first developed a thorough and free database of statutes, regulations, and decisions. More recently it has expanded into the realm of legal commentary.

    Do Law Students Understand Jurisdiction, or Do We Just Assume They Do?

    One of the biggest gaps in the first year law studentas ability to find a legal answer is the professoras assumption that the average citizen (or beginning law student) understands the court system and the hierarchy of jurisdiction. Perhaps I am particularly ignorant, or perhaps the paucity of lawyers in my family left me prone to mistakes on this topic. Now that I teach research, I think about the mistakes I made in my first and second year and wonder how many of my students are suffering under similar misapprehensions.
