Editor-in-Chief: Ryder Gilliland

This work, published to coincide with and commemorate the 30th anniversary of the coming into force of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, comprises a collection of articles by leading criminal and constitutional law practitioners which summarize the state of current jurisprudence on the various key sections of the Charter. The Charter at Thirty highlights the evolution of the most important Charter rights from the perspective of practitioners who have been practicing in the area since the time the Charter was introduced. In particular, the articles touch upon the law and practice prior to enactment of the particular section(s) under discussion, its evolution under Charter jurisprudence and the present state of the law.
