Upcoming Talks

Following in my co-blogger Leonid Sirota’s footsteps, I am posting a list of the talks I am giving across Canada this fall. My list is much shorter than Leonid’s, but if you are at any of these events, please feel free to come say hello. As Leonid says, it is always great to meet readers of the blog in person:

September 19: University of Saskatchewan College of Law, 11:30-1pm, “The Extreme Intoxication Defence” with Professor Sarah Burningham. I will discuss my recent paper on the McCaw case and declarations of invalidity in superior courts.

September 20: Canadian Law and Economics Association Annual Conference, University of Toronto Faculty of Law, 12:00pm: “An Economic Theory of Immunization in the Canadian Law of Judicial Review.” My paper deals with the problem of immunization adverted to in a number of Federal Court of Appeal decisions, and advances an informational explanation for the causes of immunization.

More information on the conference here. 

October 18: Université de Montréal (Symposium of the Journal of Commonwealth Law): “The Political Problem with Human Rights Tribunals,” a discussion of the norm of independence in administrative decision-making and the tension between political accountability and independence.

Hope to see you at one of these events!
