"To Be Frank": Celebrating the Hon. Frank Iacobucci


Chancellor Day Hall NCDH 312, 3644 rue Peel, Montreal, QC, H3A 1W9, CA

This one-day colloquium will celebrate Justice Frank Iacobucci's contributions to Canadian law and society on the occasion of his 80th birthday.

The colloquium's panels will be inspired by written contributions submitted beforehand by participants with a range of experience, positions and leadership roles who at one time or another, have interacted with Justice Iacobucci as a friend, colleague, mentor, judge, boss, advisor, co-author, etc. It is hoped that participants will draw lessons from Justice Iacobucci's trajectory, including the teaching and practice of law, university leadership, government policy-shaping, corporate governance, and judicial decisionmaking.
