New issue of Canadian International Lawyer

  • June 07, 2016

Here’s what editor Noemi Gal-Or has to say about Canadian International Lawyer Journal Vol. 11:

“This issue of the CIL explores three themes that have garnered attention in 2015: migration, corruption, and the recognition of foreign judgments. Our feature article, Facing the Difficult Management of Flows of Migrants and Asylum Seekers to the EU: Italy as a Case Study, by Chiarra Favilli, lays out the complicated European regional refugee law and illustrates a compelling case study for the international legal challenges faced by countries sharing in the responsibility for refugees. With respect to corruption, in the legal developments section, Noah Arshinoff guides the Canadian lawyer in navigating the maze of Canadian anti-corruption legislation and the pitfalls of debarment. In a practice note, Ken MacDonald discusses the challenge of defending in Canada against the enforcement of a judgment rendered by a corrupt foreign court. This issue also features two articles covering issues surrounding the Chevron saga and the latest jurisprudential pronouncements on Canada’s law on the recognition and foreign judgements. Barry Appleton and Sean Stephenson weigh the advantages and disadvantages of the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Chevron v Yaiguaje in a case comment while Warren D. Ragoonanan in a practice note educates us on impact of Chevron’s experience for corporate social responsibility.”
