Has seeing L'Heureux Dubé's name in a judgement motived you to read a case? Have you said «hell ya» when L'Heureux Dubé cites her own previous dissent in a later majority decision? Have you impatiently read through a judgement to get to L'Heureux Dubé's dissent at the end?

The Law Faculty's new Feminist Law Book Club invites you to join us to read «Claire L'Heureux Dubé: A Life» by Constance Backhouse.

The second woman appointed to the Supreme Court, and the first Québécoise, L'Heureux Dubé was known as “the great dissenter,” making judgments that were applauded and criticized in turn.

There are several copies of the book at U of T Libraries and there's also an online version.

IMPORTANT:
We will be reading Introduction + Section 1 + Section 7-28 + Conclusion. That would equal around 350 pages. Please feel free to read the whole book/ sections of 29-36 that interest you.

For future book club meetings, the Law Library has offered to purchase us more physical copies.

We hope to read two more books in the semester and have two more meetings in March and April. We will discuss details at the meeting.
