Book Description
Peter W. Hogg's Constitutional Law of Canada remains the classic text in its field, and the one to which practitioners turn for authoritative guidance on the complex issues and concepts which comprise Canadian constitutional law.

The 2013 Student Edition is an abridged version of the looseleaf two-volume, 5th Edition Supplemented, which was extensively revised in 2007, along with chapter reorganizations, to better reflect the doctrine recently developed by the Supreme Court. The Student Edition contains 35 of the 60 chapters found in the looseleaf that the author has deemed most likely to be useful to students.

For ease of reference, the title of each of the omitted chapters are listed in their appropriate place in the Table of Contents of this edition. The Student edition includes the full Table of Cases and Index found in the looseleaf edition.

Its softcover, smaller size, portability and lower price make the 2013 Student Edition the ideal starting point for the study of constitutional law by students across Canada, and a valuable addition to any course about constitutional law.

The 2013 Student Edition of Constitutional Law of Canada incorporates up-to-date case law from the Supreme Court of Canada up to October 2012.
