Join the Osgoode Society

Established in 1979, the Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History publishes books on Canadian legal history, and creates and preserves an oral history archive.

Since 1981 the Society has published over 100 books on a diverse range of topics in Canadian legal history and has recorded more than 600 oral histories from various members of the legal profession.

This year we are adding a new category of membership, responding to some of our members who tell us that they want to support the Osgoode Society but do not want our membership book. Members opting for this category will receive a charitable donation receipt for part of their subscription.

All other categories of membership – Student, Individual with book, and Individual Sustaining – will continue to come with our members’ book for the year.

Your membership in the Society helps us continue to promote and to preserve Canadian Legal History. Join us!

Select Membership Category:

Student Member $25/yr
Individual Member, with book $60/yr
Individual Member, no book $50/yr
Individual Sustaining Member $165/yr
Corporate Sustaining $500/yr

Those who opt for a membership which includes a book will receive Constance Backhouse, A Biography Claire L’Heureux-Dubé. Check the book list for a description.

Optional Extra:

This year we are publishing one optional extra, An Exceptional Law: Section 98 and the Emergency State, 1918-1936, by Dennis Molinaro. Check the book list for a description.

A portion of the ordinary membership without book, individual sustaining and McMurtry Honour Roll membership entitles the member to a charitable receipt.
