Courts of law at once reflect and shape the society in which they reside and dispense justice. To mark the 2010 centenary of the British Columbia Court of Appeal, this book presents an institutional, jurisprudential, and biographical account of the court and its evolving role in the province. Richly illustrated and replete with group portraits of judges and accounts of key cases, this authoritative history explores how the court came into being, how it has operated, and who its judges have been. In the process, it tells the story of how the court has shaped - and been shaped by - the social, political, and legal development of British Columbia. . (source: Nielsen Book Data)
This book brings alive the cultural and spiritual distinctiveness of the Gitskan and Wet'suwet'en peoples while serving as a stinging indictment of the western legal systems which deny rights, justice and dignity to native peoples. This is a rich and revelatory scrapbook of portraits sketches, court transcripts, newspaper reports and photographs. The book tells the wonderful and painful stories behind the courtroom drama while making it clear how important the Gitksan and Wet'suwet'en's struggles for control of their land is for the world-wide movement for indigenous rights.
