Osgoode Hall Law School’s Annual Constitutional Cases Conference, recognized as the leading constitutional law conference in Canada, brings together many highly respected constitutional scholars, lawyers, students, and experts for an insightful and practical analysis of the Supreme Court’s significant constitutional judgments of the past year.

Panel A | Access to Justice Panelists will consider issues of public interest standing, including questions of justiciability, genuine interest, and reasonable and effective means.
