AdIDEM/CMLA

AdIDEM/CMLA members are lawyers representing the media across Canada.

Associate Members, who may or may not be lawyers, have had experience in issues involving media law and free expression, and are advocates for free expression as well.


The past decade has seen some tremendous victories for Canadian media law. These include new libel defences (responsible communication), strengthened libel defences (fair comment), increased access to courts as the Dagenais open court principles have been increasingly recognized and applied and most recently, a new shield law to protect reporter's confidential sources. Ad Idem/Canadian Media Lawyers' Association has been at the forefront of these developments. Very grateful for the hard work of past members, past presidents and current members who have fought to advance media interests in Canadian media law and particularly to our founding members, Danny Henry and Brian Rogers, who had the foresight to establish this organization and have helped nurture a culture of mutual respect, collaboration and friendship amongst Canadian media lawyers. Looking forward to continuing this tradition as we confront new challenges over the coming years.
