Canadian Law: An Introduction,
6th Edition of Intro to Canadian Law — coming in Sept 2014

Canadian Law: an Introduction is a well-rounded introduction to the legal system and legal institutions in Canada. Neil Boyd highlights the principles, powers, and privileges that Canadian law conveys as an instrument of democracy.

Now in its fourth edition, Canadian Law promotes debate and discussion, and combines the basic building blocks of Canada's public law system with a broad social analysis of the legal order. It examines sources of law, the role of law, the significance of the Constitution Act, and the process of statutory interpretation. Substantive law – tort, family, administrative, and criminal – is also featured.
