The ones definitely scheduled include a presentation by Professor Harvey Amani Whitfield, Department of History, University of Calgary, on the legal history of Nova Scotia’s black community, a significant presence in that colony from the 1780s. We are also conducting two ‘interviews’ discussing the links between legal history and judicial decision-making with two Supreme Court of Canada judges, the Honourable Russell Brown and the Honourable Nicholas Kasirer. The latter two will take place on February 2nd (Justice Brown) and March 30th (Justice Kasirer).
