Canadian Association of Law Libraries Webinar on Constitutional Law

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) is organizing a webinar on February 12 (this Thursday) on constitutional law:
"Questions / topics to be covered will include:

- How is constitutional law taught in law school?
- More specifically, the following concepts will be discussed:
  • Division of powers in the Constitution Act, 1867
  • The "Peace, Order and Good Government" Clause ("POGG" powers)
  • Doctrine of paramountcy
  • Charter of Rights and Freedoms, including discussion of the basic rights and freedoms and section 1 "reasonable limits" on those rights and freedoms
- Research tips for researching constitutional law
- Creating your own research guides and pathfinders for researching constitutional law"

"Attendees interested in doing so are encouraged to read in advance of the webinar the decision in R v Big M Drug Mart Ltd, [1985] 1 SCR 295 (the famous 'Sunday shopping' decision). As part of this webinar, the instructor will 'simulate' a first-year constitutional law class using the Socratic method in discussion of this case."
It is part of CALL's 2014-2015 series of webinars on substantive law.

The speaker is Ted Tjaden, national litigation precedents lawyer in Gowlings’ Toronto office. He is the author of Legal Research and Writing, 3rd ed (Toronto: Irwin Law, 2010).

The webinar will take place from 1 to 2:30PM Eastern Time.

CALL/ACBD Member: $40 + $5.20 HST    = $45.20
Non-member: $60 + $7.80 HST    = $67.80
