43rd Annual Workshop on Commercial & Consumer Law


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

This year, the 2013 Annual Workshop on Commercial & Consumer Law will be taking place at McGill's Faculty of Law.

Established by Professor Emeritus Jacob Ziegel (U. Toronto), this long-running Workshop is the only academic business law conference regularly held in Canada. It is designed to keep legal scholars abreast of current developments in the commercial and consumer law areas.

This year's program will offer eight panels, which have attracted a distinguished roster of presenters from across the country, and which will be chaired by legal practitioners, faculty members and several eminent members of the judiciary.

Our keynote address will be given by former Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, the Honourable Marie Deschamps.
