“Researching Legislative Intent: Part 1, Tracing Legislative Evolution”

What is Legislative Evolution? What is Legislative History? And how do they differ? Why are they so important in the Canadian Common Law? How do you go about tracing the history of a statute and why would you need to do so? Where do you find evidence of legislative intent? Please join Susan Barker of the Bora Laskin Law Library and Erica Anderson of the Ontario Legislative Library, for the answers to these questions and more.

About Susan and Erica: Susan Barker, Digital Services Librarian at the Bora Laskin Law Library and Erica Anderson, Research Librarian with the Legislative Library and Research Services section of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario are collaborating on a forthcoming book on researching legislative intent. This session will be the first of two sessions on researching legislative intent. Part II is scheduled for January 15, 2015.

Where: Room Vic 101 at Victoria University college, University of Toronto, right next to the Museum subway station.
