Using International Law in Canadian Courts

Using International Law in Canadian Courts

2nd edition

By Gib Van Ert


Engagement with International Law is notably absent in Canada's legal past. It is likely, however, to be a momentous part of Canada's legal future. In Using International Law in Canadian Courts, Gib van Ert argues that a lack of basic international legal understanding on the part of lawyers and judges is no longer permissible in the integrated world in which we live, and that we must educate ourselves better if we are to manage that integration process in the interests of Canadian society. Accordingly, Using International Law in Canadian Courts sets out to provide Canadian practitioners and legal academics with a straightforward guide to using public international law in Canadian courts and tribunals.
