Comprehensive coverage of topics such as Charter litigation, federalism, Aboriginal law, public international law & administrative law

"Mr. Bryant and Professor Sossin have succeeded in presenting an excellent introduction to important subjects in public law that will be a valuable reference to members of the [OBA] Constitutional, Civil Liberties, and Human Rights Section." Adam Dodek Borden Ladner Gervais LLP Toronto, ON Public Law provides comprehensive coverage, in one volume, of topics that affect the practice of every lawyer and anyone studying the law: Charter litigation, federalism, Aboriginal law, public international law and administrative law. For practitioners with cursory knowledge of public law, experts wishing a refresher, and students requiring an overview, Public Law permits quick reference, without having to access the many treatises for each of the public law subjects covered. Public Law also serves as an excellent introduction to the core doctrines of public law for students and non-lawyers.
