Taking it to the Top: The Supreme Court of Canada and the Cases it Hears

What does access to justice mean, and do you think anyone should be able to take their case to the Supreme Court of Canada? Or, should the Supreme Court choose the cases it hears and, if so, how should those decisions be made? Please join me for an informative lecture on this important topic, which will also give you an opportunity to ask questions.

This event is part of the Spring 2016 Speaker series. Register for the Spring 2016 Event Series.
