Confederation Debates revisited

University of Alberta Faculty of Law professors James Muir and Peter Carver have introduced a historical role-playing element to a course in constitutional law, whereby students negotiate the BNA act and its successor, the Constitution Act, 1982 (including the Charter.)

The innovative course was inspired by a similar exercise conducted in American Universities, and supported by the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund at the U of A. You can read more about it here.

Thanks to legal historian Sarah Hamill, the U of A Faculty of Law's first doctoral student, for the head's up on this. Keep those cards and letters (and emails) coming in--we would love to pass on any news of legal-history related teaching, research, writing and public history projects.
