    Still looking for articling post-grad

    Deodorant is a big one, I mean.. just wow.
  2. Very few people under 40 own property in Vancouver without family money. In that sense, it is representative.

    Multiple employment offers

    Relax, go with whichever firm you liked better. When you say things like your experience was ahead of the pack you can expect some ribbing because you’re taking yourself too seriously. You just articled.

    Do lawyers ever have really "grand" offices?

    Open concept for law is hilarious. It’s just an excuse for the managing partner to not have to worry about or pay for office space as people come and go. I’d rather work out of the trunk of my car on a laptop with McDonald’s wifi than work open concept.

    Family Lawyers

    Try to remember the role of lawyer in family law is more to help people and their kids rather than fight their fight. Don’t let the client’s drama become your drama. And try to laugh with opposing counsel, even when they’re upset.

    Bay Street Bonuses

    Each partnership agreement is negotiated separately and there are all kinds of base models out there. Revenues fluxuate. Expenses fluxuate. There is a big incentive for partners to suggest a high profit per partner when it’s high, to make their partnership buy in more valuable. Dry those salty tears and hold onto the grains.

    No, but those who criticized the benchers might, I think they missed the issue. I actually agree with your concern regarding gutting the limitations on section 1 in the administrative context of an increasingly administrative state.

    It would depend if the referendum question was crafted so as to cause minimal impairment and otherwise complied with s. 1. If it did comply, then I see no reason why the fact that the public body at large made the decision changes anything other than to ensure it was indeed the will of the organization.

    I am concerned about language referring to the referendum as subjecting charter issues to the tyranny of the masses. The LSBC is a self governing institution and its members are its highest authority. It seems anti-democratic to me for the benchers to be deemed to have reneged on their responsibility by putting this issue to a vote.

    It doesn’t. Perhaps you’re assuming I don’t hold a religion.

    Just because someone was brainwashed as a child doesn’t mean they have no choice as an adult, does it?

    And assuming the other woman knew you were married. Seems actionable to me. Of course it’s not but this just illustrates an inconsistency in our law because a similar offence to dignity such as disrespecting a religious garb could warrant damages.

    Could you go to human rights tribunal for damages to your dignity caused by adultery on the basis of disregard for your family status?

    This is why religion should not be a protected ground. Or, if religion is a protected ground then family status should be as well, and there should be damages for harm caused by adultery. I don’t see how we can have it both ways.
