Nicholas Kasirer Appointed to the Supreme Court of Canada

As a McGill Law alumn (LL.B./B.C.L. '18), I was pleased to hear that Nicholas Kasirer was nominated to the Supreme Court of Canada. 

Justice Kasirer follows in a long line of McGill Law alumni who have dedicated significant portions of their careers to public service. He joins other exceptional leaders such as current Minister of Justice David Lametti (LL.B./B.C.L. '89) and current Minister of the Environment Catherine McKenna (LL.B./B.C.L. '99).

Justice Kasirer graduated from the Faculty (LL.B./B.C.L. '85) and served as a professor for over a decade. He was later nominated Dean of the Faculty, a position which he occupied for six years. Following his deanship, Justice Kasirer was nominated to the Quebec Court of Appeal. 

Justice Kasirer is an exceptional scholar and teacher. He is thoughtful and humble - as thoroughly reflected in his judicial questionnaire.

I have no doubt that he will, in his new role, further contribute to the development of the law in Canada.

Should Religions Hoard Their Cash?

People seem to be outraged that religions hoard their cash. While this is in no way a recent phenomenon, the outrage is. The bottom line is that some religious organisations are very, very rich  –  and have been for a very long time.  The Catholic Church, at the helm of the most popular organised religion on Earth, settled sexual assault cases for billions (with a  b ) of dollars. Scientology is estimated to own between one and three billion dollars (net) worth of property. We recently learned that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (known, to its dismay, as the Mormon Church) owns an investment portfolio worth 100 billion dollars. The Church only has some 16 million members. It also takes in some 7 billion dollars each year. (The Church mandates tithing of 10% of its members' gross income.) Recently, some have made that argument that churches should not benefit from a tax exemption if they hoard their cash.  It is true that churches are tax exempt. Their members

On Putting Clients First

A few days ago, Paul Clement, one of the United States' most prominent Supreme Court advocates, left his firm. He'd just prevailed in a significant gun rights case, and his firm had just announced it would no longer represent clients in such cases. Anyone who knows Clement and his practice knew it was only a matter of days. Clement had left another large law firm, King & Spalding, in 2011 when the firm withdrew from defending the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (a law that defined marriage as between partners of opposite sexes). Here's why I would have done the same thing. It has nothing to do with guns, unpopular clients, or law firm politics.  According to American Lawyer, Clement's law firm, Kirkland & Ellis, is the largest law firm in the world by revenue, and the third most profitable. Its equity partners each made $6,194,000 last year. Clement served in a Republican administration, and he often represents clients whose interests align with
