Focus: Global View
In 1998 the first
Joint Study Institute (JSI) was introduced in Cambridge, England and hosted
by the British and Irish Association of Law Libraries (http://www.biall.org.uk/).
The second was held at Yale University by the American Association of
Law Libraries (http://www.aallnet.org/index.asp)
in 2000. This year, 2002, the Canadian Association of Law Libraries /
Association Canadienne des Bibliotheques de Droit (CALL/ACBD) (http://www.callacbd.ca/)
with the generous support of the Carswell Institute (http://www.carswell.com/index.asp)
is proudly sponsoring the Joint Study Institute (JSI)!
Canadian Focus: Global View is the theme of this year's Institute to be held at the glorious Hatley Castle, Royal Roads University (http://www.royalroads.ca/home/default.htm) in Victoria British Columbia from May 22-25, 2002.
On all fronts the Planning Committee for this year's Canadian Focus: Global View Institute has exceeded these "criteria"!
The programme is nicely falling into place with ten sessions planned. They range from an opening night Fireside Chat: Canadian History is NOT Boring, to Canada's Constitutional Framework, Common Law and Civil Law: Canada's Traditions and Methods, The Politics of Canada, Canada's Legislative and Judicial Process to others dealing with Canada in the international arena Canada's Métier: the Peacekeeping Role and the Judiciary in the International Arena. Needless to say, there are some exceptional social events planned as well including a pub night, a Scottish dinner and golf tournament and more.
Over the next several weeks additional information will be forthcoming as the website is mounted. In the interim, though plan to mark your calendar to attend Canadian Focus: Global View in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia.
And why not make it a doubly good hit of Canadianna and stay on to attend the Canadian Association of Law Libraries / Association Canadienne des Bibliotheques de Droit (CALL/ACBD) Annual Conference Traditions for Tomorrow to be held in Victoria from May 26 through 29, 2002 (http://call2002.law.uvic.ca/english/index.html) immediately following the Institute.
