Announcing our 2nd Legal History Evening, May 28 at Osgoode Hall:"Writing the Histories of Law in Canada: The Interaction of Three Legal Systems".
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, at 5:30 p..m in the Museum Room at Osgoode Hall, 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.
