Product description

Québec was the first Canadian province to adopt class actions as a legal procedure, and while the other provinces have followed Québec's lead, class actions in that jurisdiction remain unique as they are largely conditioned by the tenets of civil law, not common law. The Québec Class Action: A Roadmap, 2nd Edition is a useful primer that will enable in-house counsel and practitioners both inside and outside of Canada to navigate Québec's complex class action system with greater confidence and ease.
