"Final Argument": A Young Litigator's First Trip To The Supreme Court of Canada
This Lawyers Weekly documentary follows Montreal litigator Sophie Dormeau as she travels to Ottawa to argue her first appeal--an important Charter freedom of expression case-- before the Supreme Court of Canada on Jan. 26, 2011. The case of Dore v. Bernard required the court to decide whether the Barreau du Quebec's reprimand of Montreal lawyer Gilles Dore for criticizing Quebec Superior Court Justice Jean-Guy Boilard in a private letter was a violation of the lawyer's right to freedom of expression or reasonably enforced the professional conduct rule that lawyers must act with "objectivity, moderation and dignity."
