Agriculture (2014 Reissue)
Dr. Donald Buckingham, LL.B., Dip. Int. Law, LL.D.
The law which regulates agriculture is drawn together from several "black letter" areas of private law (including the law of contracts, torts, and property) and public law (including criminal law, regulatory law, administrative law and constitutional law). Activities relating to agriculture are not only affected by the regulatory effects of federal and provincial legislation directly targeting the sector, but also by a large body of law of general application that affects producers, processors and distributors of agricultural products.

Halsbury's Agriculture title discusses the many aspects of private and public law that regulate how farming is carried out in Canada, including:
  • The constitutional framework that governs agriculture
  • The acquisition, use and disposal of farm land
  • Farm financing
  • Environmental issues
  • Laws impacting animals, plants and agricultural inputs
  • Laws affecting agricultural workers and farm families
Alternative Dispute Resolution (2014 Reissue)
Duncan W. Glaholt, B.A., J.D., FCIArb, & Markus Rotterdam, Dipl.-Jur., LL.M.
Alternative Dispute Resolution ("ADR") is commonly used as a term describing means of resolving disputes outside of traditional litigation processes. As the expenses associated with adversarial court-based litigation climb in an over-crowded judicial system, ADR has become an increasingly popular way of resolving conflicts between parties - making an understanding of the methods and implications of ADR essential for every practitioner. This title discusses a number of such alternative dispute resolution methodologies, including:
  • Mediation
  • Conciliation
  • Expert determination
  • Dispute review
  • Advisory boards
  • Ombudspersons
Also discussed is:
  • Domestic and international arbitration
  • Community and faith-based dispute resolution models
  • Processes within the court system that incorporate aspects of alternative dispute resolution, such as court- annexed mediation and settlement and pre-trial conferences
