UTM Philosophy to host talk by Beverley McLachlin, former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada
Tuesday September 24, 2019, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The UTM Department of Philosophy is delighted to announce that on September 24, Justice Beverley McLachlin will visit UTM to give us a glimpse inside her newly published memoir, Truth Be Told: My Journey Through Life and the Law (Simon & Schuster, September 2019). McLachlin, who holds BA and MA degrees in philosophy, was Canada’s first female, and longest serving, Chief Justice. From a farm in Pincher Creek, Alberta, through her training in philosophy and law, to her post atop the highest court in the land, McLachlin’s passion for justice has guided her in making decisions that will shape Canadian social reality for years to come. Join us as she shares stories of her remarkable career and her private life, and discusses the principles she considers essential to Canadian democracy and the rule of law.
Justice McLachlin will sign copies of her book at a reception following her talk. Admission to this event is free, but registration is required. (Please click here to register.)
