GREGORY TARDI, BCL, LLB, DJur, is a member of the Barreau du Québec.
After an initial period in private practice in his father’s law f‌irm in Mont-
real, he served in the Public Service of Canada. He worked in a variety
of departments, including the Privy Council Oce and the Department
of Justice. His long experience as legal counsel at Elections Canada and
as senior parliamentary counsel at the House of Commons led him to
formulate his theory of political law. is is a novel way of uniting the
various legal aspects of government into a single subject matter; of focus-
ing on the role of law in democratic governing, in contrast to the role of
policy and politics; and of conceptualizing the accountability of all pub-
lic ocials to law. In this conceptual framework, the legal aspects of elec-
tioneering play a central role. Mr Tardi has taught at Carleton University,
McGill University, and Osgoode Hall Law School. He is the author of
he Legal Framework of Government, he Law of Democratic Governing, and he
heory and Practice of Political Law, as well as a number of articles. He is the
executive editor of the Journal of Parliamentary and Political Law | Revue de
droit parlementaire et politique.
