Aboriginal Law: Practice Primers and Contemporary Developments 2015
Typical of a dynamic and rapidly growing area of concern, Aboriginal Law possesses interesting challenges and unavoidable considerations for legal practitioners as well as industry. Far from being the largely self-contained area of endeavour of a decade or two ago, Aboriginal Law now arguably possesses cross-practice or generalist implications in areas as diverse as corporate, mining, and municipal law. Issues in need of exploration and greater understanding include the duty to consult, the consultation process, claims litigation, and treaty rights, to name a few. Aware of the importance of this rapidly evolving area of law, The Commons Institute has created an annual full-day program with presentations and discussions by an august and experienced faculty. This program is well suited to legal counsel in various fora, industry actors, Aboriginal leaders, and jurists.
