La justice entre droit et gouvernement (Éditions Thémis/Schulthess, 2011). This publication was awarded the 2012 Walter Owen Prize by the Canadian Bar Association and was translated into English as Judicial Independence: Keeping Law at a Distance From Politics (Markham, Ontario: LexisNexis, 2013). This prize is awarded in acknowledgement of excellence in legal writing and exceptional new contributions to Canadian legal doctrine. Professor Valois is moreover the co-author of a research report on the independence of administrative justice in Quebec, entitled, La justice administrative: entre indépendance et responsabilité, Jalons pour la création d'un régime commun des décideurs administratifs indépendants. Martine Valois has acted as Principal Drafting Advisor to the Commission of Inquiry on the nomination process of judges in Quebec. She regularly provides the media with commentary on the work of the Commission of Inquiry on the awarding and management of public contracts in the construction industry.
