Product details

This sole-contributor volume analyzes the theory and practice of stare decisis (the legal principle of determining points of law according to precedent) in the Supreme Court of Canada, focusing on its role, function, and development in constitutional adjudication under the Charter. Evaluating the Court’s methodology in revisiting its own precedents, author Lawrence David advances an original taxonomic classification drawing on essential and contemporary scholarship in Canadian and American constitutional law. The volume also includes an appendix on how the empirical analysis for the work was conducted.
