This new publication is a comprehensive, yet accessible, overview of dangerous offender law in Canada. Written by three experts in the field, including defence counsel and intervenor from the landmark R. v. Boutilier case at the Supreme Court of Canada, Dangerous Offender Law presents criminal justice participants and the Canadian public with a long overdue guide to understanding the complex sentencing regime set out in Part XXIV of Canada’s Criminal Code.
To provide a complete picture of this multifaceted topic, the authors have included the key case law relevant to each section, as well as insightful commentary. The result is a systematic and up-to-date review of the dangerous and long-term offender regimes in Canada, provided by counsel with a wealth of experience and expertise.
Dangerous Offender Law is a useful manual – and valuable reference book – for all criminal justice participants, from judges, lawyers and law students, to risk assessors (usually psychologists or psychiatrists), to law enforcement, corrections and parole personnel, to complainants and witnesses, to offenders themselves. Generally, anyone involved or interested in this specialized area of Canadian criminal law will find this volume to be an illuminating and insightful resource.
