—Richard Albert, Boston College Law School
I am pleased to announce that Boston College Law School will host a major conference to mark the sesquicentennial of Confederation in Canada on October 19-20, 2017. The program, entitled “Rewriting the Canadian Constitution,” will feature four panels and a moderated luncheon discussion with the Hon. Russell Brown of the Supreme Court of Canada.
This entire program is very generously sponsored by the Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy here at Boston College, which is directed by my faculty colleague Vlad Perju.
I am organizing this program in collaboration with the substantial intellectual energies of Kate Glover and Wade Wright, both representing the Public Law Group at Western University, and Michael Pal, representing the Public Law Group at the University of Ottawa.
