The David Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights is pleased to invite abstract submissions for its upcoming Public Interest Litigation Conference, which will be held on March 2, 2018. The Conference will be focused on legal strategies for successful public interest litigation in Canada, as a means to bring together relevant stakeholders to share their challenges, successes and strategies in this field.
Please find below the call for papers. We invite proposals for papers in 2 formats: a longer paper covering pertinent issues related to public interest litigation in Canada and a shorter paper focused on lessons learned from a specific public interest case. We hope that together these streams will generate positive response among both practitioners (lawyers and NGOs) who are engaged in public interest litigation and scholars who study and analyze the impact of these cases.
As indicated in the call for papers, please submit proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 30, 2017.
We look forward to receiving your applications and to hosting you in March!
