Product Description

From the Back Cover

'This book addresses an important but under-examined issue of institutional design within our system of government - whether Canadians are well-served by having two distinct levels of trial courts in each province. The contributors represent an impressively broad range of constituencies - court administrators, the judiciary, legal scholars, political scientists, criminologists, politicians, and government lawyers - and they bring to bear an equally impressive range of approaches - historical, empirical, sociological, political, constitutional, and comparative. Peter H. Russell has done a masterful job as editor of organizing the different contributions into a coherent and well-structured whole. He also offers his own insightful analysis of the topic in the concluding chapter.'

-Robin Elliot, Faculty of Law, University of British Columbia
