The Legal Dimensions Series stems from an annual legal and socio-legal research initiative sponsored by the Canadian Association of Law Teachers, the Canadian Law and Society Association, the Canadian Council of Law Deans, and the Law Commission of Canada. Volumes in this series will examine various issues of law reform from a multidisciplinary perspective. It seeks to advance our knowledge about law and society through the analysis of fundamental aspects of laws.
This collection explores the intersection of interdependency and the law, and contemplates some of the key issues at stake in the way the law interprets and addresses human relationships.
Part of a series designed to explore the role of law in structuring human relationships, this collection of essays re-evaluates the public-private divide to examine how it affects the legal forms that shape our personal relationships.
Demonstrating the linkages between law and risk, these essays tackle some difficult topics, including dangerous offenders, sex offender notification, drug courts, genetic research, pesticide use, child pornography, and tobacco advertising.
The essays in this book present important perspectives on the role of Indigenous legal traditions in reclaiming and preserving the autonomy of Aboriginal communities and in reconciling the relationship between these communities and Canadian governments.
