A general introduction to the constitutional law of Canada with concentration on division of powers, Aboriginal constitutional law and the Charter.
As the class usually has approximately 35 students, a combination of lectures and question and answer teaching methods are used.
Method of evaluation: students will be evaluated by a take-home exam, an essay on “Aboriginal Rights”, an op-ed on a Charter issue; and a final examination in the examination period on the Charter. Students may work in pairs on all assignments and examinations except the final exam.
Students are required to purchase Canadian Constitutional Law (4th ed) (available from the UofM Bookstore or used copies may also be available from other students). A supplement including key constitutional documents will be distributed to students in class. Additional materials will be available on the Angel website as announced in class or by email.
