Module overview

The Module provides a critical reflection on the development and state of constitutional law in Canada. We will reflect on the way constitutional law founded the transition from colony to constitutional state. Furthermore the module considers how, in contemporary Canada, constitutional law is called upon to mediate deep historical social divisions and tensions and also to foster a social and political culture of tolerance and equality.
