Canadian Courts: Law, Politics, and Process
by Lori Hausseger
Publisher: Oxford University Press, Canada
Edition: - 2009
Canadian Courts is the first textbook in the Canadian context to specifically address the relationship between the law and politics in a very broad sense, that is, by not just focusing on one institution, such as the Supreme Court, or one relationship, such as that between judges, politicians, and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The book's principle aims are to foster an understanding of the actors and institutions in Canada's judicial process; to demonstrate that the judicial process is a key part of Canada's governing process; to reveal the interrelationship between law, politics, and the judicial process; and to help readers engage in the theories, concepts, and debates that surround the judicial process and its interaction with law and politics.
