We hope you will attend the Winnipeg launch of Sexual Regulation and the Law: A Canadian Perspective edited by Richard Jochelson and James Gacek, Thursday Jan 30 2020 at 7:00 pm in the McNally Robinson Booksellers Grant Park Atrium.

This book seeks to do more than tell a story of broad generalities about the law. It forges the links between the history of law and modern iterations of judgments pertaining to that law. Newer laws in Canada have been drafted to recognize that sexual expression can be a means of violence inherently, and thus an exploration of modern sexual digital expression and its emerging jurisprudence represent a new frontier in the regulation of sex and sexuality in Canada. The contributors, including David Ireland, Brayden McDonald, and Alicia Read-Dueck, explore how legal regulation has responded to these new crimes.
