Earlier this week, the Chief Justice of Canada announced her retirement effective December 15, 2017.

Appointed to the Supreme Court in 1989 and elevated to Chief Justice in 2000, Beverley McLachlin will leave the Court as its longest-serving Chief Justice.

In honor of Chief Justice McLachlin’s tenure on the Supreme Court, I-CONnect will host an online symposium on her legacy.

We welcome submissions ranging between 500 and 1000 words from scholars of all levels and from all jurisdictions. Submissions may address one or more of her judgments, her role as Chief Justice, her career as a judge or anything appropriate to the occasion of marking her retirement after nearly three decades of service on the Supreme Court.

Submissions should be sent in Word format by email to no later than September 1, 2017.

We welcome brief expressions of interest prior to the submission deadline.
