One of the highlights of the Toronto Summer Law Institute each year, is a presentation by a judge about five significant cases that have recently appeared before the Court of Appeal for Ontario. The judge explains what makes the cases interesting from an educational perspective, offering his insight and observations. Each year OJEN produces a teaching resource based on these Top Five Cases. It consists of a case summary, background information on the issues, the decision and reasons for the decision, and suggested discussion questions for the class.
The Top Five Cases of 2018 have recently been posted on the OJEN website. They include:
- Law Society of British Columbia v Trinity Western University
- Rankin (Rankin’s Garage and Sales) v J.J.
- Groia v Law Society of Upper Canada
- Williams Lake Indian Band v Canada
- R. v Bingley
Top Five cases are relevant to Constitutional and Charter Law and a variety of other grade 11 and 12 law topics. Check out the Top Five of 2018 here.
