Summary

Beginning with the nature and sources of Canadian law, the author examines the constitutional division of legislative powers, and the impact of the Charter on legislative authority. Separate chapters detail the role and hierarchy of the courts, the role of judges and lawyers, and the principle of stare decisis in shaping judge-made law with a special chapter on the Quebec legal system. This updated edition includes significant additions to the sections on military law, changes to the provincial court structure (i.e., simplified procedures, case management, and court reform), incorporation of formal and informal ADR, and key charter and constitutional jurisprudence that continues to shape the law in Canada.
