Compassionate Justice Speaker Event
February 24 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
The focus of the 2018-2019 Compassionate Justice Series returns to an exploration
of issues and concerns in Canada’s criminal justice system.
This presentation will touch upon the challenges in effecting criminal justice reform in our new social media world, where politicians are informed by tweets rather than Law Commission reports. The instant opinion formation in social media is posing a huge potential impediment to informed evidence-based decision-making in criminal law reform. Marie Henein
is a senior partner at the law firm of Henein Hutchison LLP.
Free admission. Lunch provided at 11:45 am, with the speaker following at 12:30 pm.
