The Criminal Lawyers Association (CLA) has awarded the prestigious G. Arthur Martin Criminal Justice Medal to Philip Campbell.
The Martin Medal was struck in 1989 to honour Goldwyn Arthur Martin, a nationally prominent criminal lawyer and eminent jurist. It is awarded in recognition of lifelong achievement and sustained commitment to the principles and advancement of criminal justice in Canada.
Noted for his ethics, professionalism, mentorship and advocacy, Mr. Campbell is being recognized for his career at the bar and his contribution to the administration of justice. He has acted as counsel on a number of notable cases including the exoneration of Steven Truscott in 2007, the exoneration of Glen Assoun in 2019 and the 2003 appeal in R. v. Brown, the case that set the Canadian standard for establishing racial profiling by the police. The Martin Medal will be presented to Mr. Campbell at a virtual award presentation to be held on November 5, 2020.
The presentation will include:
Previous winners of the medal include G. Arthur Martin himself, John Robinette, Edward L. Greenspan, Marlys Edwardh, and James Lockyer as well as former Supreme Court of Canada Chief Justices Antonio Lamer and Beverley McLachlin, along with prominent justices from all levels of the judiciary and defence counsel from across the country.
Join us on November 5, at 7 p.m. Participants are invited to submit questions in advance for consideration during the event. Please submit your questions by November 1.
