CALE: Year in Review

To the CALE Listserv

As the creator and the host of the Canadian Legal Ethics listserv, it is my pleasure to provide this year end report to the 75 of you who are members of this listserv. How did this happen?

The listserv was founded at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law in October 2010 after the 5th meeting of the group variously known as the Canadian Legal Ethics teachers network and other names. Since we don’t have much in the way of competition, there is much risk in our using many names. Let me thank my Law School, the University of Ottawa, for hosting the listserv.

At that meeting in October, we also decided to formally create an organization – the Canadian Association for Legal Ethics (CALE) who had its founding corporate meeting at ILEC 5 in Banff in July 2012. The CALE website can be found at https://ethicsincanada.com/ and is run by Chantal Morton an expatriate Canadian legal ethics teacher now teaching in Melbourne. If you would like to post information on the CALE website please e-mail Chantal at CAlegalethics – at – gmail.com. Chantal often posts articles that people post on this listserv to our public CALE website.

2012 in review – Statistics for our Website

To the CALE Community and Beyond

I thought you might be interested that the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,800 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.
