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.
We have recently changed our categories of membership. First, we have added 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.
Second, we have established a new category of membership for this who wish to show their appreciation for our work and to go above and beyond in supporting us. Join the McMurtry Circle and receive a certificate of appreciation signed by our founder. Members opting for this category will receive a charitable donation receipt for most of their subscription. Editor-in –Chief Professor Jim Phillips has joined the McMurtry Circle, and encourages others to do so.
All categories of membership other than ‘Individual Member, No Book’ will continue to come with our members’ book for the year.
Special Note – January 2018
Special Note – FEBRUARY 2018
For the early months of 2018, to February 28th, all of our categories of members, other than those who choose not to take a book with their membership, to join for 2018, and receive the 2018 members book when it becomes available, and also still join for 2017, and receive the 2017 members book. The members book for 2018 will be Philip Girard, Jim Phillips, and Blake Brown, A History of Law in Canada Volume I: Beginnings to 1866, published with the University of Toronto Press
McMurtry Circle members will receive both books with their 2018 membership.
