About Me

William Barnes

I am a Toronto-based lawyer and computer programmer. I received my law degree from the University of Toronto in 2011 and was called to the bar in 2013 after articling with the Ministry of the Attorney General in the criminal appeals branch. My legal interests include criminal, family, intellectual property and technology law. I program in PHP and Javascript (server- and client-side). I operate LawOfCanada.net, a free statute and case law front-end.
