Resolute Advocacy, The Notwithstanding Clause, And Counsel’S Conundrum: A Note On Toronto (City) V Ontario (Attorney General), Andrew Flavelle Martin Oct 2018

Resolute Advocacy, The Notwithstanding Clause, And Counsel’S Conundrum: A Note On Toronto (City) V Ontario (Attorney General), Andrew Flavelle Martin

Faculty Publications

A lawyer’s duties to the client must be balanced against, among other things, his or her duties to the court. There are some instructions that counsel should not follow. In Toronto (City) v Ontario (Attorney General), counsel for Ontario followed problematic instructions that I argue he should have refused. Ontario, while seeking leave pending appeal from a decision striking down legislation as an unjustifiable infringement of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, had begun the process of passing a corresponding bill that invoked the Charter’s notwithstanding clause or override. During the stay hearing, counsel for Ontario stated ...

Clinical And Experiential Learning In Canadian Law Schools: Current Perspectives, Gemma Smyth, Samantha Hale, Neil Gold

Law Publications

This question was the starting point for our research, which examined two sets of data. In the first part of this project, we analyzed available information on existing clinical and experiential learning programs in Canadian law schools. This data revealed a growing quantity and variety of programs across the country. We then held qualitative interviews with deans, professors, and clinicians across Canada regarding their views of clinical and experiential learning. While the interviews suggested that many of the same financial and curricular challenges ...
