As the country's highest appellate court, the Supreme Court of Canada produces the nation's most authoritative jurisprudence. Since its initial publication in 1980, the Supreme Court Law Review offers a thorough analysis of key decisions by the Supreme Court, while critically examining the soundness of those decisions. This highly regarded title remains one of the top annual publications in law libraries and institutions across Canada and worldwide.
Now in its second series, the Supreme Court Law Review publishes 4-5 times a year.
Physician-assisted dying, or "medical assistance in dying", as it is now known, was decriminalized in certain circumstances as a result of the Supreme Court of Canada's 2015 decision in Carter v. Canada (Attorney General) and implemented through Bill C-14 in 2016. This timely volume, comprising 13 papers developed out of a national academic symposium held in September 2017, examines the social, ethical and legal implications of the Carter I and Carter II decisions and offers meaningful reflections to the many perplexing questions currently being asked about MAiD.
