Welcome: About the OLR Blog

The Ottawa Law Review is pleased to announce its launch of the OLR Blog. The Ottawa Law Review maintains a long-standing tradition of promoting a diversity of opinion on contemporary legal issues. In this respect, the OLR Blog will encourage the legal community to further engage in timely discussions of these issues. Our goal is to share this platform as an accessible space for all who are interested in exposure to current questions concerning the theory and practice of law.

To that end, we invite academics, legal practitioners, and law students to submit blog posts on current legal topics. In keeping with our ordinary publication philosophy, we encourage commentary concerning all areas of law. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis.

Disclaimer: The remarks found on the OLR Blog belong to the author(s) and do not represent the views of the Ottawa Law Review. The posts provide general information about the law but neither constitutes nor provides legal advice. While all accepted blog submissions are edited, the Ottawa Law Review does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in the commentary.

Indigenous Affirmation: As part of the University of Ottawa, the Ottawa Law Review pays respect to the Algonquin people, who are the traditional guardians of this land. We acknowledge their longstanding relationship with this territory, which remains unceded. We pay respect to all Indigenous people in this region, from all nations across Canada, who call Ottawa home. We acknowledge the traditional knowledge keepers, both young and old. And we honour their courageous leaders: past, present, and future.

Faculty Advisors: The Ottawa Law Review is thankful for the guidance and assistance provided by our faculty advisors Professors Kyle Kirkup and Yan Campagnolo.
