A lot of people ask us this question. The answer: mostly by advertising. Our clients buy ads on this website and in our eNewsletters. In addition, they hire us to develop sponsored content to promote their products and services. Using The Precedent A-List to share firm news or job opportunities also supports Precedent.

Nope. Precedent is published by Law and Style Media Inc., a local, independently owned Toronto media company.

We focus on Toronto lawyers because writing local, unique content is what we do best. We strive to provide authentic, on-the-ground coverage to the Toronto legal community. Of course, anyone is welcome to read and enjoy Precedent! All our content is available for free here on our website.


We would love to hear your story idea! You can send an email to editor@precedentmagazine.com. Please note that we don’t usually write about specific practice areas or the latest developments in caselaw or legislation. We are looking for story ideas that would be of interest to all lawyers, no matter their practice area.

Examples of great ideas include: profiles on interesting lawyers, lifestyle stories such as cool homes and unique hobbies, the inside scoop on what’s happening at your firm (or someone else’s). We also welcome candid critiques of the profession. Don’t be shy!

We would love to be invited to cover your event! Thank you for thinking of us. Precedent covers events such as awards receptions, office launches and fundraisers. We can’t cover everything, but we do our best. Please email editor@precedentmagazine.com with the following information:

  • Name and description of the host organization
  • Time, date, location of event
  • Estimated number of lawyers who will be in attendance
  • Names of special guests or lawyers being honoured
