A view from the bench

November 20, 2017


Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin, the first female and longest-serving chief justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, spoke to a packed Wallace Hall at Monday’s Principal’s Forum public lecture.

Chief Justice McLachlin – who will be stepping down from the bench on Dec. 15 – answered a series of questions from Bill Flanagan, Dean of the Faculty of Law, touching upon her career and looking ahead for justice in Canada.

The Principal’s Forum is a public lecture series that enables the principal to invite distinguished visitors to campus to speak on issues of interest to the Queen’s community.
