U of T to launch Program on Ethics in Law and Business

A new think tank being announced next week by the University of Toronto’s law school will take on the ethical issues lawyers faced on Bay Street, where they increasingly struggle with conflict-of-interest rules and other dilemmas.

The initiative, which U of T says will be unique in North America, is called the Program on Ethics in Law and Business, and it counts former Supreme Court justice Frank Iacobucci, now senior counsel with Torys LLP, as chairman of an advisory board of prominent Bay Street figures.
