Weird and Wacky Wednesday: Volume 192

This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays were reminded that not everything requires a 9-1-1 call, and we also learn what not to do if we ever find ourselves in an on the run situation. And we end this week off with a police appearance at the most talked-about man of the week Will Smith’s house…but the visit had nothing to with what’s been keeping him in the news this week.

Women’s History Month

Earlier this week, on International Women’s Day, I was featured on the LexisNexis’s podcast, where I talked about my work as an IRP lawyer and what inspired me to do what I do. I also offer some advice to women hoping to work law. If you are interested in listening, here is a link to that.

In honour of March being Women’s History Month, LexisNexis is also running a promo on the two books I had published in early 2021. Using the promo code WOMEN2022 at checkout, you can get 15% off of each book until the end of the month!

The first book is titled Cross-Examination: The Pinpoint Method where I use my years of experience to offer insight on ways to succeed in cross-examinations, while also providing guidance on overcoming the hurdles and challenges that are common in cross-examinations.

My second book, Immediate Roadside Prohibitions in Western Canada, details the IRP scheme in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, looks at its problems and ways to challenge them.

These books are not only helpful to lawyers but could also be beneficial to judges or law school libraries.

If you’re interested in honing your skills and becoming more knowledgeable in criminal defence, don’t hesitate to visit LexisNexis’s website to purchase my books. Don’t forget to use promo code WOMEN2022 which will offer 15% off the whole month of March!

Can the court order that you get a COVID test?

COVID-19 changed the way we do a lot of things in our daily lives. We’ve adapted as a society to what we now consider the new norms, including wearing a mask and social distancing from each other.

In criminal courts, we have seen a number of changes to adjust to the pandemic, including frequent cleaning. In some cases, a negative COVID test may be required to enter the courthouse.

Weird and Wacky Wednesday: Volume 188

This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we begin in Florida with a dispute between a couple that was a not so innocent misunderstanding. Then we see just how angry promoting vaccinations get anti-vaxxers, and we end out wacky Wednesday where we started it, in Florida with a family dispute.
