In addition to Professor Hathaway’s keynote address, Barbara Jackman will present on bringing matters before the Provincial Court; Hilary Evans Cameron will present on credibility; and Angus Grant will present his annual roundup of notable Federal Court and Federal Court of Appeal jurisprudence. Other panels include working with the media and bringing motions before the Refugee Protection Division. The full agenda will be available shortly.
