Since the publication of the first edition in 1970, Labour and Employment Law: Cases, Materials, and Commentary has become the standard resource for labour and employment law courses across Canada.

The 7th edition of Criminal Law has been thoroughly updated to include new developments such as the interaction of the legal rights in the Charter with the reasonable limits provision in section 1 of the Charter in R v KR, disagreements between the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Manitoba Court of Appeal about whether the exclusion of murder from the offence of duress can be justified, new developments in the offence of infanticide, and the relation of the due diligence defence to statutory standards. The discussion of provocation has been updated and simplified to take into account the Supreme Court's and Parliament's recent restriction on the controversial defence.
Racial profiling is a hot-button topic that elicits strong responses on both sides. A series of public discussions has so far failed to yield a conclusive consensus. Racial Profiling and Human Rights in Canada examines a combination of psychological, sociological, organizational, political, and community perspectives, resulting in a holistic, multi-faceted approach to understanding the phenomenon of racial profiling and to pre-empting or eradicating it.
As the first book dedicated to quasi-constitutional laws in Canada, this work provides a much-needed overview of the elements that unite the various rights-protecting laws that have received this designation from the Supreme Court of Canada. These laws comprise several categories of federal and provincial statutes, including human rights, access-to-information, privacy, language rights, and the traditional civil liberties, as well as a common law principle. Quasi-constitutional Laws of Canada addresses the legal impact and theory of quasi- constitutionality for both a professional and an academic audience. It provides a useful roadmap for practitioners who routinely work with these statutes by engaging with the defining legal characteristics of quasi- constitutionality.
While drug-impaired driving has been a criminal offence in Canada since 1925, charges have been more common and more complex since the approval of the Drug Recognition Exercises (DRE) and Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST) in 2008. The legalization of marijuana and the imposition of per se limits for a number of drugs emphasizes the importance of a concise source of information for the complex matters raised in these cases.
