In Brief - Summer 2008


In This Issue

LAW NOTES canvasses a host of interesting and current topics including law suits that have no chance of success (summary judgment); insider trading exemptions; stipulated

price contracts (CCDC 2); misrepresentation of risk (insurance); the business cost of new environmental requirements (municipal) and third-party orders (federal); “material change” (in the securities context); and firing (as cautionary notes for the employer).

The Table of Contents will provide more details about full-length articles on trade, competition policy, patents (significant differences from American law), our trade-mark law, and the ramifications to manufacturers and importers of

new consumer protection legislation.

And you may wish to weigh in on whether we should be sorry about the “apology” being legislated; the pros and cons of putting the squeeze on knock-off goods; the idea behind

videotaping medical examinations; whether there is reason to be concerned about rejigging the “reasonableness simpliciter” rule; and whether the decisions of boards and tribunals will now enjoy less or more finality.

There is an article on how unresolved issues of Aboriginal rights create problems, and another on “cumulative cause” and “mitigation” as workplace issues.

Brief Life Bites may provide a smile, and in the hard copy, your Letters and Comments, and a little bit about us.
