This past year has seen a number of potentially game-changing developments that have created a buzz within the Aboriginal Law bar, including the two much-anticipated Supreme Court of Canada decisions, Tsilhqot'in Nation v. British Columbia (a.k.a. Roger William) and Grassy Narrows First Nation v. Ontario (Natural Resources) (a.k.a. Keewatin).

Join our expert faculty for an analysis and discussion of these two cases, an update on the duty to consult, along with other recent legal developments and trends that impact Aboriginal rights and interests. You will also have a valuable opportunity to analyze and to discuss in small groups various ethical issues and scenarios arising in the Aboriginal Law context – and to gain Professionalism Hours in a way suited to your needs and practice.
