Martha Of the North

Fictional legal case on Grise Fiord and Resolute Bay You will watch the documentary movie Martha of the North (dir. Marquise Lepage, 2008) on the State-organized “displacement” / “deportation” of Inuit families in inhabited lands north of the Arctic Circle. You will imagine that descendants of the family are suing the Canadian government. You will write the legal brief / submission of the Families’ lawyer as well as the submission of the lawyer defending the Canadian State. It is up to you to decide before which court (Canadian federal Court, Canada’s Supreme Court, an International Court, other) you wish the case to be brought and you will explain your choice in the introduction. It is also up to you to choose the crime categories you want to use. (12 pages, Times new roman, 12, justified left and right, 1.5 spaced).
