Harvey T. Strosberg Essay Prize
The Canadian Class Action Review annually publishes the top papers submitted for the Harvey T. Strosberg Essay Prize.
The Canadian Class Action Review is always looking for fresh, new voices and great writing. If you are interested in submitting, please note that your article, case comment, or book review must be submitted electronically as a Word document. The CCAR follows the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, 9th edition. The paper should focus on issues affecting Canadian class actions (as opposed to focusing on the United States, for example). We also ask that you submit a short abstract of no more than 250 words with your paper. All essay submissions must be typed, and a suggested length is between 8,000 and 15,000 words (not including citations). However, this is just a suggested length, and we will accept submissions that run shorter or longer, if necessary for the paper. If you are submitting a French paper, please include an English abstract. We are currently accepting submissions for our next issue. Tables of contents for previous issues are set out here so you can ensure that your topic is not duplicative.
We look forward to receiving your submission electronically at dpetersen-deeprose at irwinlaw dot com.
As a condition of submission and publication, the author agrees to Irwin Law Inc.’s publishing the paper in the CCAR in print and/or electronic form.
Supporting diversity and equality
The CCAR stands in support of those who, for too long, have had to bear the burden of systemic oppression. A key tenet of class actions is providing access to justice to people who might otherwise be denied it within our current social and legal systems. The CCAR especially welcomes submissions that address issues relating to systemic oppression faced by people who are Black, Indigenous, LGBTQIA2S+, or living with disability, as well as People of Colour or members of other racialized and marginalized groups within Canada’s colonial borders and history. We believe it is important to talk about the ways that systemic oppression can be challenged by our legal system, whether or not the challenge is successful.
