Enhancing the Use of International Instruments in BC Aboriginal Law litigation

May 2004

ELC student Carl Lem has compiled a comprehensive index to International treaties, instruments and norms relating to Indigenous and Environmental Law issues. The resource is now generally accessible to any law firm representing aboriginal groups, and accessible publicly on the ELC website.

It is expected that this work will elevate the general use of international law in Aboriginal-environmental cases. ELC has already received a number of comments about the usefulness of this new resource. It is hoped this will encourage the use of these instruments in Canadian courts.
