THE ADVOCATE 891 VOL. 75 PART 6 NOVEMBER 2017 ing to the Needs of Persons with Dementia: Developing a Canadian Guardianship Tribunal Model”. The panels included contributions from Charlotte Emmet (Northumbria University), Titti Mattsson (Lund University), Laura Pritchard-Jones (Keele University), Doug Surtees (University of Saskatchewan), Helene Love (University of Toronto), Mary Donnelly (University College Cork) and Hope Davidson (University of Limerick). Professor Hall is planning similar panels (and potentially a law and dementia stream) for the 2019 IALMH conference. If you would like to know more about this initiative please contact her at: <mahall@tru.ca>. I recently authored “Aboriginal Rights Today—Canada’s 150th: Have Recent Efforts to Enliven Aboriginal and Treaty Rights Given a Reason to Celebrate?” in Errol Mendes, ed., Canada’s Constitutional Democracy: The 150th Anniversary Celebration (Toronto: LexisNexis Canada, 2017) 167–191 and “The Rule of Law and Canada’s 150th Birthday: A Cause for Celebration for Many Canadians but a Reminder of Terrible Wrongs for Indigenous Peoples” in Janine Lespérance et al., eds., Canada and the Rule of Law: 150 Years After Confederation (Ottawa: International Commission of Jurists, 2017) 27– 33. I also delivered a paper entitled “How Settler Constitutions Can Seek to Affect/Regulate Indigenous Identity: Canada after 150 and Australia after 116 Years” at a conference hosted by the Association of Canadian Studies in Australia and New Zealand at the University of Wollongong. During the conference, I also convened the keynote roundtable panel on “Aspects of Reconciliation: Canada and Australia”. TRU COMMUNITY LEGAL CLINIC The TRU Community Legal Clinic continues to increase its services to those in need of free legal help in Kamloops and the surrounding region. The number of law students in the clinic has doubled to 12 students for the fall semester. A very experienced local lawyer, Odette Dempsey-Caputo, has been hired as a half-time lawyer to work in our clinic along with our executive director Ted Murray and office manager Hayley Blatchford. A second location has also been added in a different part of the city to facilitate greater access by those in need. Lawyers interested in volunteering in our clinic are very welcome indeed to approach Ted Murray or me to discuss how you might help. t t t t t
