Since the entrenchment of Aboriginal rights in the Canadian constitution, Aboriginal law has continued to evolve amidst changing political and cultural influences. Over the past four decades, the Supreme Court of Canada has carefully considered the nature of aboriginal rights and their intersection with complex constitutional principles, resulting in an expansive and challenging area of law.

Halsbury's Aboriginal (2024 Reissue) succinctly discusses all pertinent legislation and summarizes and analyzes the extensive decisions rendered by the Supreme Court of Canada, as well as other courts. With its accessible framework and superior analysis, this comprehensive book is an imperative resource for practitioners and professors of aboriginal law, as well as government and other officials who are directly involved with Indigenous peoples.
