Book on LGBTQ2+ Law Wins 2020 Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) has announced that the book LGBTQ2+ Law: Practice Issues and Analysis from Emond Publishing has won the 2020 Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing.

The award is for a publisher that has demonstrated excellence by publishing a work, series, website or e-product that makes a significant contribution to legal research and scholarship.

In her comments published today on the Slaw.ca website, CALL President Shaunna Mireau writes:
"Members of the LGBTQ2+ community face unique hurdles, especially in areas of family, immigration, estates, and criminal law. LGBTQ2+ Law: Practice Issues and Analysis takes a practical approach to identifying and analyzing key LGBTQ2+ issues that arise in these various legal contexts. The first text of its kind, it draws on the expertise and experience of a diverse author team to provide practitioners with a deep understanding of how their clients’ identities affect their interactions with the Canadian legal landscape. The book also contains more than 20 personal stories describing the challenges faced and successes celebrated by the LGBTQ2+ community. It is available in print and electronic format."
The award honours the memory Hugh Lawford (1933-2009), Professor of Law at Queens’ University and the founder of Quicklaw.
