Drew Hasselback, BA'90, LLB'96

Legal Post Editor for the National Post

As the legal post editor for the National Post, Drew Hasselback feels the weight of this responsibility. He knows if he gets it wrong, the consequences are immediate and severe. A recent typo in a quote attributed to the Chief Justice of Ontario made for a long day.

Hasselback keeps people informed by translating business law into lay language. With the National Post since its founding in 1998, Hasselback previously served as editor of the Financial Post website and was the paper’s mining reporter.

He knows the public wants to believe law is all binary, all black and white. The reality is more grey, more nuanced, and his job is to put those nuances under a microscope and magnify them into images non-lawyers can perceive.
