Professor Paul Emond published the first Emond casebook in 1978. That text, and the ones that followed, were soon adopted into classes at the University of Toronto, Osgoode Hall Law School, and other Canadian common law programs.
Since then, Emond has established itself as one of Canada’s leading independent legal publishers. In 40 years of publishing, Emond has expanded to serve college, university, and professional markets. Our catalogue includes textbooks, casebooks, exam prep resources, CPD-accredited video lectures, and legal handbooks that customers can rely on from backpack to briefcase.
Emond titles have received praise from various publications including The Globe and Mail, Queen’s Law Journal, Canadian Law Library Review, and Blue Line Magazine. We have received several industry awards, including the 2020 and 2018 Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing, the 2012 Donald Smiley Prize, and the 2011 Donner Prize. Two of our books have been recognized with the Walter Owen Book Prize, Indigenous People and the Criminal Justice System in 2019 and Search and Seizure in 2021.
