Canadian Law (3 cr)
Law 795
The course is intended to provide students with an overview of the law and legal systems of Canada. It will explore Canada’s historical development, legal structure, and place within the common law world. Covering topics such as Federalism, Responsible Government, the Charter of Rights, Family Law, Conflicts of Law, Criminal Law and Procedure, First Nations, Hate Speech, and Business Law the course will concentrate on both the similarities and differences with U.S. law and the probable reasons for the differences. Some attention will be devoted to the law of Quebec and the duality of its legal system. At least one week will be spent on conducting legal research in Canadian Law, but the course is not a research course.
