“Seeds” at the Centaur Theater: Legal Case Turned into Play
Based on interviews and court trial transcripts from Monsanto Canada Inc. v. Schmeiser, 2004 SCC 34,  1 SCR 902, “Seeds” brings us into a maze of patent wars, opinionated scientists and clashes between farmers and the biotechnology industry.
When Schmeiser famously asked the question, “who owns life?” before the Supreme Court of Canada, his words galvanized the anti-GMO movement around the world.
You can see the play from October 29 to November 24, 2013.
ICLR Online, UK Case Law Database
The Law Library is happy to offer to our users an access to a newly purchased UK case law database, ICLR Online.
The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting for England and Wales was established in 1865 by members of the legal profession with the object of “preparation and publication, in a convenient form, at a moderate price, and under gratuitous professional control, of Reports of Judicial Decisions of the Superior and Appellate Courts in England and Wales” (Memorandum and Articles of Association, 1870). As well as the official Law Reports, ICLR publishes the Weekly Law Reports, the Industrial Cases Reports, the Business Law Reports, the Public and Third Sector Law Reports and the Statutes and Public and General Acts.
In October 2011, ICLR launched an online database, ICLR Online. ICLR Online is the hub of legal authorities dating back to 1865. A dedicated case law platform presents the cases in a comprehensive and readable format. The law reports are combined with the Citator+ to present all the relevant case information in one screen, making legal research easier.
ICLR online can be accessed at Subject guides / Law / Legislation and cases- foreign jurisdictions
