Podcasts

À partir du volume 57, la Revue de droit de McGill est devenue la première revue canadienne à lancer une importante série de podcasts. Depuis, nos podcasts ont exploré de nombreuses problématiques en droit canadien, notamment sur la justice criminelle et le fédéralisme canadien. Nos podcasts ont également traité de sujets de droit international, comme les crises humanitaires et le développement de nouvelles normes internationales, tel quel la personnalité juridique de l’environnement. Dans chaque épisode, nous invitons des universitaires de renom, des praticiens et d’autres experts, qui ont été impliqués dans les débats et décisions qui altèrent et révolutionnent le droit au Canada et dans le monde.

We speak with Dr. Kristopher Wells, associate professor in the Faculty of Health and Community Studies at MacEwen University, and author of the Canada Research Chair report, “Conversion Therapy in Canada: A Guide for Legislative Action.”
