Despite the limitations of the Copyright Act for individual non-commercial infringements[3] and the limitations under current copyright law on authorization, the Federal Court of Appeal was prepared to allow a reverse class-action to proceed in which a plaintiff claims numerous parties conducted . . .

Tracking International Current Events: Social Media Focus on Nicaragua and Haiti

Nothing Less Than Great: Reforming Canadaas Universities (How Do Law Schools Fare?)

INTRODUCTION

Law schools have a mixed relationship with the universities of which they are a part. Subject to the universities’ rules, law schools nevertheless also give the impression of having an “independent” status. In Nothing Less than Great: Reforming Canada’s Universities (“Nothing Less than Great“) (University of Toronto Press, 2021), Harvey P. Weingarten assesses the state of universities across (mostly) English-speaking Canada and makes general recommendations for reform. While he refers to law schools only in passing, much of what he has to say is relevant to the landscape of Ontario law schools and legal education. Here I . . . [more]

Persistent Discord Within an Administrative Body

Members of the public who are uninitiated with the legal system in Canada are often confused when they encounter administrative law for the first time. The widely-recognized strengths of administrative tribunals, their flexibility and expediency, is often only possible because they discard some elements of formality and rigid procedure.

The relationship between reviewing courts and administrative tribunals is also constantly evolving. The Supreme Court of Canada in National Corn Growers Assn. v. Canada (Import Tribunal) resisted in 1990 an approach where courts would substitute the opinion over that of an administrative tribunal’s interpretation of a legislative provision, preferring greater curial . . .
