In partnership with Grapple Law, Canadian Lawyers for International Human Rights (CLAIHR) presents an online Continuing Professional Development primer on Torture as Tort.
Learn about the criteria for establishing torture, how international bodies seek to prevent its occurrence, and how some jurisdictions allow the redress of torture as a tort. In particular, Heather Cohen from CLAIHR examines how Canadian courts have failed to allow litigants to sue in Canada for torture committed abroad and how this may be resolved in the future.
