This brief yet comprehensive edition draws on Emond’s best-selling Introduction to Law in Canada. Suitable for almost any introductory law course, this text provides an ample overview of general concepts, constitutional law, and other key areas of public and private law.

Material from the previous version has been updated and condensed within the same four-part structure: Theory and Context, Law and the Canadian Constitution, Private Law and Public Law, and Working with the Law. This provides readers with a strong foundation built upon the most fundamental information and concepts, including developments in judicial appointments to the Supreme Court of Canada, civil liberties, Aboriginal title, criminal law, and the practice of law. With all of this material compiled into one compact resource, this text is a must-have for anyone seeking a concise and complete guide to law in Canada.

  • New developments in judicial appointments to the Supreme Court of Canada, civil liberties, Aboriginal title, criminal law, the practice of law, and other areas
  • Satisfies LSUC competencies for introduction to law courses for paralegals
  • Numerous current examples, case illustrations, and problems
  • Updated supplements for instructors to make adoption seamless (e.g. PowerPoint presentation, instructor’s guide, and test bank)
  • Canada-wide coverage that reflects on the country’s multicultural heritage and value of inclusivity
  • Full-colour tables, figures, maps, and schematics that help demonstrate more abstract concepts
