Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History


The Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History was established in 1979 to promote the publication of work on the history of Canadian law, and to create and preserve an oral history archive.  We have been very successful at both of these.  As of 2012 we have published 88 books, in a wide variety of areas, and we now regularly add four books a year to this collection.  Our books have ranged from biographies of Supreme Court of Canada judges Bora Laskin, Brian Dickson, Bertha Wilson, Emmett Hall, and Ivan Rand to historical studies of the law relating to women and ethnic and racial minorities, to histories of courts, the legal profession and legal education.
