His Brilliant Legacy: A Conference in Honour of Peter W. Hogg

Please join us on Wednesday, January 10, 2024

This conference will help Osgoode Hall Law School support the Peter W. Hogg Memorial Award.

Peter W. Hogg was appointed a professor of Law at Osgoode Hall Law School in 1970 and became dean in 1998, serving until 2003, when he joined the Toronto law firm Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP as a scholar in residence.

Peter was best known as a leading authority on Canadian constitutional law, with the most academic citations in Supreme Court jurisprudence of any living scholar during his lifetime. Peter wrote several books, including Constitutional Law of Canada, the single most-cited book in decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada. And in 2004, Peter was a key figure in the Supreme Court's decision to legalize gay marriage in Canada in 2004.
