Bernard Cohn QC (1908-1982) was one of Canada's foremost criminal lawyers whose remarkable legal career spanned fifty-two years. Mr Cohn was called to the Ontario bar in 1930 and quickly established a law practice in Windsor Ontario devoted exclusively to criminal defence work. Following his death, the friends and family of Bernard Cohn established the Bernard Cohn Memorial Lecture Series Trust in the Faculty of Law at the University of Windsor. The Bernard Cohn Memorial Lecture in Criminal Law has been delivered annually since 1987. This volume brings together fifteen of the Bernard Cohn lectures by some of Canada's leading defence counsel and jurists. The collection has been edited by Edward L Greenspan, QC, who is a member of the Lecture Series Trust and who delivered the first lecture in 1987.
