Essays in the History of Canadian Law

Works in this series are designed to illustrate the diverse possibilities for research and writing in Canadian legal history. In combination, these volumes reflect the ecumenical scope of legal history as an intellectual enterprise and invite continued inquiry into all aspects of our judicial past. Topics explored include the evolution of divorce law, conditions in the penal system, women's rights, definitions of private property, vagrancy laws in Halifax, the administration of waterways, aboriginal title, political corruption, the origins of workers' compensation in Ontario, and the role of courts in the "wild west" of British Columbia and the Yukon in the early days of British sovereignty.
