This text is designed for college and university level courses in Canadian Law.
This exciting first edition provides readers with a useful foundation that not only explains the basic components of the Canadian legal system but also explores its functions and goals. It is broad and deep enough for students to grasp a thorough understanding of the system and to develop their own perspectives on the legal system and its relationship to society and social change. Including examples of the sometimes brilliant and sometimes inane results that law produces, this text will intrigue students and prepare them for further work in a legal framework in any field and advance their understanding of the rights and duties entailed in being a member of Canadian society.

I am pleased to see the information on aboriginal law and history. I think the chapter is now well balanced and all the material Horner has included is relevant and interesting. I have had to use a course pack to supplement texts in the past, to clarify or expand the material. I will not need to do that with the Horner text.

The content is remarkably current. The examples and case studies are current and effective. I personally found the writing style, use of examples and clarity of explanation perfectly appropriate and engaging.
