Government Liability: Law and Practice (ProView online only)
Availability: In Stock
Editors: Karen Horsman and Gareth Morley This looseleaf publication is a practitioner-oriented guide to conducting civil litigation when one of the parties involved is the Crown. With contributions from leading practioners from the private, public and academic bar, this is the first resource of its kind that is regularly updated, addressing the evolving area of civil government liability. It examines the civil liability of the federal and provincial governments in common-law Canada with respect to the major areas of private law, including:
  • Tort
  • Restitutions
  • Contract
  • Procedure
  • Fiduciary duties
Government Liability: Law and Practice keeps you up to date in this rapidly changing area of law, particularly in light of Supreme Court of Canada precedent-setting decisions in the areas of regulatory negligence, fiduciary duties of government and vicarious liability.
