Upcoming Conference on Judicial Independence

The University of Toronto and the Law Society of Upper Canada are organizing a conference on judicial independence later this week in Toronto.

Called Looking Back, Looking Forward: Judicial Independence in Canada and the World, the conference "brings together scholars in different disciplines from Canada and around the world as well as public policy makers to discuss the important connection between judicial independence and democracy and link the discussion of the issue in Canada to broader events around the world."

The opening speech will be given Thursday by Justice Richard J. Goldstone of South Africa.

The conference website also provides an extensive bibliography on the subject of judicial independence.
