The federal government will reform the process of appointing Supreme Court judges, an announcement that’s stirring debate throughout the legal field. University of Guelph professors Troy Riddell and Dennis Baker, both in the Department of Political Science, comprised half of a four-person roundtable in Maclean’s magazine on the potential pros and cons of Ottawa’s more transparent approach to Supreme Court appointments. Baker teaches constitutional law, Canadian politics and political theory, and institutional separation of powers. Riddell studies judicial politics, rights and liberties and criminal justice policies.
