Paper written by Professor Jillian Rogin cited in Supreme Court Judgment

A paper written by Professor Jillian Rogin has been cited with approval in Supreme Court Judgment R. v. Zora. The SCC judgment acknowledges that Indigenous people, overrepresented in the criminal justice system, are disproportionately affected by unnecessary and unreasonable bail conditions and resulting breach charges.

Professor Rogin's paper, "Gladue and Bail: The Pre-Trial Sentencing of Aboriginal People in Canada," which was published by the Canadian Bar Review in 2017, argues that Aboriginal people in Canada are improperly being sentenced via bail proceedings.
