I-CONnect Symposium on the Legacy of Beverley McLachlin, Chief Justice of Canada

Richard Albert, Boston College Law School

Earlier this year in June, the Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, P.C., Chief Justice of Canada, announced her retirement effective December 15, 2017.

This week–the week prior to her retirement–I-CONnect will host a special symposium in honor of Chief Justice McLachlin, for whom I had the privilege of serving as a law clerk after graduating from law school.

The symposium will feature contributions from six scholars: (1) Eric Adams (Alberta); (2) Jamie Cameron (Osgoode); Lawrence David (Harvard); (4) Howard Kislowicz (Calgary); (5) Pui Yin Lo (Hong Kong); and (6) Jenna Sapiano (St. Andrews).

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.

We thank our contributors for their participation in this special symposium.
