The Crown is involved in all aspects of the administration of justice, through statutes, regulations and policies. At both the federal and provincial levels, the Crown is the most frequent party involved in judicial proceedings in Canada. Legal practitioners in all areas must understand the unique rights and protections enjoyed by the Crown and its pivotal role in the justice system.

Halsbury's Laws of Canada – Crown (2021 Reissue) details the rights and responsibilities of the Crown, including Crown prerogatives and Crown immunity. It examines the Crown's privileges and potential liability in various contexts, such as tort, contract and property law, providing insight into its dual role as advocate and protector of the public interest.
