Marking its fourteenth year with Chief Justice Beverly McLachlin at its helm, the Supreme Court of Canada boldly addressed many high-profile matters in its 2013-14 term. Whether it was prostitution, Senate reform, the appointment of judges to its ranks, or protecting the rights of accused persons and prisoners, the past term saw our top court at odds with the Harper government in an array of matters having broad public interest. The Court also rendered significant decisions affecting your civil practice, such as using the summary judgment motion as a cheaper, faster alternative to a full trial. Hear our expert panel of veteran lawyers and scholars offer their insightful comments about recent specific decisions by our top court and identify emerging trends in the areas of civil, criminal, and public law.
