Abstract

The 2007 Bora Laskin Annual Lecture at Osgoode Hall Law School analyzes law and policy as different languages in which the judicial and political branches of government speak and think - the languages of law and policy. It asks what the languages should be in which constitutional dialogue is conducted and, in particular, whether judges should always be required to be legally trained.
