My Piece on “Dissolution by Efflux of Time” Is Published in the Journal of Parliamentary and Political Law

I’m very pleased to announce that my article “When the Bell Tolls for Parliament: Dissolution by Efflux of Time” has come out in the latest issue of the Journal of Parliamentary and Political Law.

Incidentally, the germ of this manuscript started out as an answer to a question that one of my readers asked me last year on something pertaining to fixed-date election laws, so I’m also grateful for the contributions that you make here on Parliamentum.

Also, by a curious coincidence, an article by Professor Ryan Alford of Lakehead University appears in this same issue — and he and I will be co-presenters on the first panel for the Constitution at 150 Conference, which will start next Tuesday in Montreal. (He also cited the article that Nick MacDonald and I wrote for the JPPL in 2012, which adds another wonderful layer of coincidence to it all!)

I encourage you to subscribe to the Journal of Parliamentary and Political Law or check it out in your university library.
