The Dickson Poon School of Law at King’s College London would like to invite you to a seminar with Vanessa MacDonnell, University of Ottawa Faculty of Law:

The New Parliamentary Sovereignty

Friday 22 May 2015
15.00 to 16.30
SW1.18, Somerset House East Wing
Strand Campus
King’s College London
WC2R 0RN London

In this seminar, Professor MacDonnell will discuss the variant of parliamentary sovereignty which survives the entrenchment of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. This sovereignty, she argues, is not unencumbered. Rather, it accepts that even the political sphere is infused with Charter values. She argues that the space allocated to sovereign activity by Parliament depends largely on the extent to which politicians are willing to adopt a Charter values-based politics.
