The Law of Democratic Governing - Jurisprudence
Along with The Law of Democratic Governing - Principles, the author has compiled this book of case studies to further examine the linkages among law, public administration and politics, as well as the influence of law on the conduct of public affairs. In addition to Canadian material emanating from federal and provincial courts and rulings from the Speaker of the House of Commons, it includes cases from other democratic jurisdictions such as the U.S., Great Britain, France and the European Union. The case studies explore a wide range of issues including:
• The evolving nature of the concept of the ideal of democracy
• The role of the Attorney General
• The activities of lawyers in government
• The question of the rule of law versus administrative efficiency and convenience.
