John Swan

Yesterday, with no fanfare whatever (mea culpa), Slaw had the good fortune to acquire a new member. John Swan joined us as an occasional contributor. John is counsel at Aird & Berlis LLP in Toronto, supporting lawyers in that firm with respect to legal research and opinions. A teacher and an author, John will add much lustre to Slaw and certainly knows how to provoke us into a discussion: his mild, short first comment on CanLII has rapidly turned into the hottest thread here in quite a while.

Welcome John.


  1. Welcome John – John brings a mischievous sense of humour, a kaleidoscopic knowledge of conflicts of laws and a fabulous new text – see – to the Slaw table.

  2. Welcome aboard, John! And keep up the great work.
