The Supreme Court Law Review: Osgoode’s Annual Constitutional Cases Conference

About This Journal

The edited proceedings of Osgoode’s Constitutional Cases Conference, held annually since 1997, have been published as special volumes of the Supreme Court Law Review (SCLR) since 2002. The papers provide expert commentary and analysis of the Supreme Court of Canada’s constitutional jurisprudence for the preceding calendar year. Papers by Canada’s foremost judges, constitutional scholars, and litigation experts address the Court’s decisions on federalism and constitutional rights, including aboriginal rights, as well as offer broader perspectives on constitutional theory and interpretation. Over the years this conference has been recognized as the leading source of constitutional scholarship in Canada.

The conference papers have been published in dedicated volumes of the Supreme Court Law Review (SCLR) since 2002. All published papers are available in this archive. This archive also includes two additional SCLR volumes: the first arises from a conference titled “The Charter and Criminal Justice: Twenty-Five Years Later”, published as v 40 (2008); the second is an edited collection of papers, titled “Reflections on the Legacy of Justice Bertha Wilson” and published as v 41 (2008). Both volumes are initiatives of Osgoode SCLR editors (Jamie Cameron and James Stribopoulos; J Cameron).

The archive content is updated every year by the chair(s) of Osgoode’s Annual Constitutional Cases Conference, six months after the annual SCLR volume of Constitutional Cases is published.
