Private Law Dictionary and Bilingual Lexicons - Family, Second Edition

Availability: In Stock

Over the last two decades, legislatures, judges, notaries, advocates, legal scholars, and of course families themselves have taken steps, or chosen not to, that have reshaped the normative contours of family life in Quebec. What impact has all of this had on the vocabulary of the law has been recorded in the Private Law Dictionary and Bilingual Lexicons – Family, Second Edition.

Arguably the most significant changes from the lexicographer’s vantage are those adopted in 2002 by the legislature of Quebec in An Act Instituting Civil Unions and Establishing New Rules of Filiation. The Quebec legislature’s enactment of a new Code of Civil Procedure also changed numerous elements of civil justice affecting family matters. Other changes have resulted from the legislatures welcome efforts to improve the English version of the Civil Code, and occasionally alter the French text, consonant with the idea that both languages are equally rich, and equally authoritative, expressions of Quebec civil law.

The dictionary is now presented in two separate volumes: one in English, the other in French.
