Established in 1979, the Osgoode Society publishes books on Canadian legal history and maintains an oral history archive.
5:30 p.m. May 28th Osgoode Hall-Museum Room, 130 Queen St.W.
Join us for the Osgoode Society's second evening session of legal history for legal professionals.
This fall the Osgoode Society will publish vol. I, Beginnings to 1866, of Girard, Phillips and Brown's 2-volume work, A History of Law in Canada.
On May 28, Philip Girard and Jim Phillips will provide a preview of this work, especially as it relates to the interaction of Canada’s three legal traditions: Indigenous law, civil law and common law.
They will address this theme by considering the parallel development of the settler constitution—dealing with relations between the imperial power and European settlers—and the Indigenous constitution--dealing with the relations between the imperial power and Indigenous peoples--between 1701 and Confederation. A question and answer session will follow.
