Description

Women in Criminal Justice is Book Four in the Durvile True Cases Series and in it, Canadian women judges and criminal lawyers tell of cases that they have found particularly challenging. Some were disquieting/perplexing or had surprising turns, many are high-profile, and many continue to have interesting social or personal effect. Unique to this book, are distinctly women’s perspectives, and many chapters deal with sexual assault, Indigenous, child protection and motherhood, mental health, LGBTQ+, immigration, terrorism, and other vitally pertinent issues of the decade.

Editorial Review

“Stories that stand out – personal, sometimes heart-rending stories told by defence lawyers, Crown attorneys and judges involved in Canada’s legal system.” — Jack Batten, The Toronto Star

“The reader emerges from reading Women in Criminal Justice with pictures in mind ... women who work without respite to achieve just outcomes for the people they deal with, often in the face of difficulty and at considerable personal cost.” — The Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin
