Law is often reactionary; it follows the social and technological changes.  We’re a group of lawyers trying to stay in front of some those trends with “Law in the Making“. Think of it as preventative medicine for disruptive technologies.

The primary contributors are two Toronto-based lawyers, Paul Banwatt & Haran Aruliah

Haran Aruliah is counsel and lead dev for a legal software company. He practiced criminal defence prior to making the switch back to tech and now focuses on the intersection between law & technology — from IP to Privacy. He is not in a band.
