    Intersections with Aboriginal and Indigenous Law

    Thursday, February 8
    1:00 - 2:30 PM EST

    Presentation:

    Professor Metallic will give a presentation entitled “Intersections with Aboriginal and Indigenous Law”, which will examine the numerous areas of Canadian law wherein the Indigeneity of one or more of the parties involved in a dispute will impact either the procedural or substantive outcome in law. Participants will learn how areas such as Torts, Property, Family Law, Public Law, Commercial Law, Administrative Law, etc. intersect with Aboriginal or Indigenous Law. These concepts will be defined, and participants will learn that these areas are confined to Aboriginal and Treaty Rights.

    Bio:
