The Residential School Litigation and Settlement
Guest Editors: Mayo Moran and Kent Roach
This is the first symposium issue to take an in-depth look at Canada’s Aboriginal Residential School litigation which was the largest class action in Canadian history and the innovative agreement that settled it. The volume provides insider and comparative perspectives on the settlement agreement as well as outlining the historical and contemporary context of the residential schools that many Aboriginal people in Canada were required to attend. The issue also includes critical examinations of the litigation and of various features of the settlement itself. It also looks at the larger context including the conduct of lawyers in the litigation.
