Marina Pavlović and her team intervened before the CRTC on the Wireless Code

Posted on Tuesday, February 7, 2017


Prof Marina Pavlović, a member of the Centre for Law, Technology and Society, Prof Mary Cavanagh (uOttawa ÉSIS), Sean Grassie, and Lora Hamilton, two of their research assistants, intervened before the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) in the Review of the Wireless Code. Their submission is based on preliminary findings from their Law Foundation of Ontario funded project “Mapping the Front End: Legal Information Seeking Practices”.

On February 6, the team appeared before the Commission. It's worth noting Prof. Pavlović and Cavanagh appeared along with their students, offering them an unmatched opportunity to participate in a regulatory proceeding and discuss policy issues.

Congratulations to the whole team! The Centre for Law, Technology and Society is proud to foster academic research engaged in policy-making, especially when it prominently features our students!

The team’s written submission and oral remarks are available on the CRTC website.

The highlights of the hearing are available as a Storify and the video is available on CPAC.

The team’s research was covered by The Wire Report and Motherboard. The Wire Report and Cartt also covered their CRTC presentation.
