In Canada, we sometimes take our freedom for granted. But that freedom is sometimes imperilled, and when it is, we must take the fight to the courts to win it back. Asher is a passionate defender of Canada’s Constitution. He has acted in a number of high profile constitutional cases and has co-founded two organizations dedicated to promoting the rule of law and individual rights: Advocates for the Rule of Law (“ARL”) and the Runnymede Society. Asher has also published numerous articles on constitutional law.
Asher also practices in the related area of administrative law and has written several articles on the law of judicial review. ARL recently intervened before the Supreme Court of Canada in the seminal administrative law case, Canada v. Vavilov. Asher and his co-counsel crafted an innovative argument, some of which was adopted by the Supreme Court in its decision.
