Ottawa Law Review Revue de droit d’Ottawa

Editor(s): Miteau Butshkrikidze, France Courtemanche, Brandon Orct


The Ottawa Law Review (OLR) is a bilingual and peer-reviewed academic journal published by the students of the Common Law Section at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law. Since its foundation in 1966, the OLR has contributed to legal research and scholarship on current and relevant legal issues through the publication of articles, case comments, and book reviews by jurists, practitioners, and academics. The journal also publishes interviews and podcasts featuring distinguished members of the legal profession and encourages law students to submit blog posts on contemporary legal issues on a rolling basis. The OLR’s distinct reputation has resulted in its articles being cited by a number of Canadian courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada.
