Quebec Bar Association Launches TV Series
The series is called Le Droit de savoir:
"Aimed at the general public, the tastefully-done show tackles a wide range of topics, from the rights and responsibilities of property owners and the legal myths surrounding common-law unions to the legal ABCs of launching a business and the role and responsibilities of professional regulators, all of which is interspersed with legal tidbits and profiles of Quebec lawyers who made a mark in their practice."Personal note: in the mid-90s, I worked as a researcher on the show Droit de parole, a weekly current affairs town hall program on Télé-Québec, then known as Radio-Québec.
"The themes were chosen by the co-producers of the show — the Barreau and Télé-Québec — with input from Educaloi, a non-profit organization whose mandate is to inform Quebecers of their rights and obligations by providing legal information in plain language. Through its popular website, Educaloi was able to determine the most-raised legal questions."
