Abstract

It is an exciting time for Canadian criminal law scholarship. There are any number of critical matters to examine, from issues of legislative reform, serious concerns relating to the scope of police powers in conducting investigations and their impact on constitutional rights and values, to the scope of criminal offences and defences. To explore these and many other significant topics, there is a variety of excellent venues to publish within Canada for scholars and practitioners in our communities, including practitioner journals, short submission reviews, criminology journals, and traditional law journals. When we met with the editorial team at the Manitoba Law Journal (MLJ) we did notice that there was a lacuna in Canada’s scholarly criminal law realms. We wanted to develop a venue where scholars of criminal law, criminal justice, and criminology could openly discuss legal issues of significant import - a space where scholars could debate criminal law practice, theory, philosophy, and, also, provide an intellectual home that would welcome cognate disciplines to engage in these debates. In short, we wanted to establish a leading location to host national and international conversations on criminal law and justice, while at the same time allowing for the progression of the MLJ’s goal to provide interesting insights to the local and national bar.
