Canadian Foundation for Legal Research – Grants 2020

The goal of the Canadian Foundation for Legal Research is to encourage legal writing that will be valuable to Canadian lawyers, notaries and judges in their day-to-day work in the law and to the administration of justice.

Description: The Canadian Foundation for Legal Research provides funds for legal research falling into three broad categories:

  • Research and writing that emphasizes the statement of existing rules of law, which is often called doctrinal research;
  • Research that relates to the workings of the legal system; and
  • Research that relates to developments in fields peripheral to legal doctrine, such as criminology, psychology, psychiatry, sociology and economics, and their relationship to rules of law.
