Two words no law student would envision using in the same sentence: pandemic and placement. Yet this is the reality for all third-year law students at Lakehead University’s Bora Laskin Faculty of Law.

Ontario’s Social Distancing Laws

Social distancing is the only way that we are going to survive the COVID-19 pandemic. People are increasingly asking about what they can do outside, where they can go, and with whom they can travel. In this blog post, I look at Ontario’s law governing social distancing rules, the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.

Fool Me Once… Prior Consistent Statements

Testifying in court can be confusing. There are rules of evidence that prevent people from saying what many might think is important information. In this blog post, I discuss a development in a counter-intuitive testimonial rule, the inadmissibility of prior consistent statements.

This post is for everyone: people unfamiliar with the law, appeal lawyers, and evidence scholars. It’s a short discussion in which I look at a development and point out some cases in which the rule is applied. None of what I write is legal advice.
