Studies interest group litigation in Canada.

In the first book-length study of interest group litigation in Canada, Friends of the Court traces the Canadian Supreme Court’s ever-changing relationship with interest groups since the 1970s. After explaining how the Court was pressured to welcome more interest groups in the late 1980s, Brodie introduces a new theory of political status describing how the Court privileges certain groups over others.
