La chaire Wilson entend participer à l’organisation d’une activité de cours comptant pour 3 crédits (Maitrise en droit technologies) et ce en collaboration avec les instances publiques fédérales que sont Patrimoine Canada et Innovation, Sciences et Développement Économique Canada (ISED / ISDE).
À cette étape, nous sommes à identifier les étudiants inscrits à la maitrise et au doctorat qui seraient intéressés à participer. Un tri est en cours d’élaboration. Toutes personnes intéressées et donc conviées à rejoindre Vincent Gautrais par courriel (vincent . gautrais @ umontreal . ca) pour lui faire part de son intérêt. Un CV court est requis. Les places sont limitées.
Description du cours
This course stems from a collaboration between the Departments of Canadian Heritage (PCH) and Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED), and the faculties of law at McGill University, University of Montreal, University of Ottawa, University of Toronto, and York University (Osgoode Hall). It has been conceived as a way for students to gain instruction and experience in public policy thinking, drafting and briefing. Teams of students will research and prepare a thorough policy report, prepared as a Memorandum to Cabinet, under the supervision of university professors, departmental officials and policy experts, in response to one of three policy thematics. The thematics will be provided by the Copyright and International Trade Policy Branch of PCH and the Marketplace Framework Policy Branch of ISED, corresponding to current policy issues identified by the branches in the course of their work on copyright. The teams will be called to present orally their work before a panel of experts and officials – such as policy analysts, academics, industry stakeholders and political decision makers – at the “Grand Oral” in Ottawa in March 2018. This will be a unique opportunity for students to showcase their skills, legal talents and imagination, where they will pitch to and receive feedback from those responsible for copyright policy on issues that are contemporary and relevant. In addition, the course is uniquely timed to coincide with the s. 92 parliamentary review of the Copyright Act, which may serve as a live feed informing the students’ work.
The teams will be convened to (X) 3-hour sessions in preparation of their work before the oral competition. Two of those sessions will be taught by Canadian government officials on policy development, drafting and briefing in the context of Canadian copyright law.
Associated travel costs will be covered by each institution.
