The Canadian Civil Liberties Association is proud to host our second annual RightsWatch Conference in Toronto, Ontario. RightsWatch will bring together 70 leading law students, articling students and young lawyers from across the country for an intimate conference on civil liberties issues. The event also offers new members of the profession a chance to engage informally with leading jurists and senior members of the Bar, who will be serving as conference speakers.
The RightsWatch Conference will take place on October 15-16, 2010 at Campbell House Museum and at the Osgoode Hall Professional Development Centre, both in downtown Toronto. This year’s panel discussions include:
- Rights of Canadians Detained Abroad: Positive obligations and the extra-territorial application of the Charter
Constitutional Damages and the Future of Charter Litigation: The Implications of the SCC decision in Ward v. Vancouver, 2010 SCC 27
Losing Faith in the Justice System? N.S. v. R. et al., 2010 ONCA __ and a woman’s right to wear a niqab in criminal proceedings
Safe Injection Sites and the Future of Section 7 Charter Protections: PHS Community Services Society v. Canada, 2010 BCCA 15, drug policy and a constitutional right to health.
