Description

A unique discussion of the judicial system in Canada, this is the first book on the court system to be written from a social science, rather than a legal, perspective.

McCormick analyzes which courts and judges are most often cited, and discusses party-capability theory in a Canadian context. He offers new data on the courts, including statistics on the Supreme Court caseload, the success rates on appeals from provincial courts of appeal to the Supreme Court, and success rates, by litigant category, in provincial and appeal court decisions.

Written in accessible language and offering data that have never before been published, Canada's Courts will be of particular interest to legal professionals and those in related fields of the social sciences.
