Podcast: Corporate Social Responsibility Blog (Episode 23)


On last week’s podcast, we brought you Part 1 of Omar Ha-Redeye’s interview with Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP Associate Jason MacLean. MacLean is one of the contributors to Corporate Social Responsibility – A Legal Analysis. In Part 1 of the interview, MacLean talked about the precautionary principle and how it can create a competitive advantage for the corporations that embrace it. He also discussed how securities law may lead to investors demanding more complete disclosure of the environmental impacts of a corporation’s activities.

This week, we feature Part 2 of Omar’s interview with Jason MacLean. In this episode, MacLean discusses the Supreme Court’s decision in the BCE case, as well as the transition from writing a book to publishing a blog about corporate social responsibility. The blog enables MacLean and his co-authors to chronicle the latest developments in corporate social responsibility and the law without being frozen in time.
