Video: Wise and Kowalski on the "Articling Crisis"

I had the pleasure of sitting down for a recent chat on the state of the legal universe with Mitch Kowalski, Toronto lawyer, Legal Post blogger and author of Avoiding Extinction: Reimagining Legal Services for the 21st Century.

Inevitably, our discussion turned to the current articling debate, a topic upon which we certainly have very little agreement. Here's the video of the somewhat animated "articling segment" of our talk:

We also make a bit of news in this video, with Mr. Kowalski confirming his intention to run again in the LSUC Bencher elections of 2015. "When the Law Society gets stuff right, I'll go away," he declared.

I'll be posting video of the balance of our discussion - we canvassed Mr. Kowalski's book, his recent speaking tour in the UK, and the future of the legal profession, here and overseas - over then next short while.
