The principal-agent relationship is fundamental to corporate and commercial law and pervades numerous other practice areas, such that it is essential for every practitioner to have a basic understanding of the common law principles of agency. Halsbury's Agency title clearly articulates such matters as the creation and termination of the agency, the rights, obligations and duties of an agent and principal, and remedies for breach of duty.

Topics in this indispensable reference include:

Auctions are an important avenue for commercial sales activity, with auction sales occurring in many contexts, including sale of goods by landlords and innkeepers of property previously belonging to tenants and guests, sale of livestock and sale of property for tax arrears. The laws, regulations and bylaws with respect to auctions seek to ensure the fairness of the process, the integrity of the goods offered for sale and that auctioneers, bidders and sellers abide by specific requirements.

Gambling's economic significance and its ability to transcend international borders has rendered its regulation both complex and lucrative. While prescribed gambling activities remain an indictable offence under the Criminal Code, gambling law in Canada is shifting towards greater provincial authority. Halsbury's Betting, Gaming and Lotteries title details the federal and provincial government's shared jurisdiction over gambling, with comprehensive information on: criminal offences, licensed activities, provincial regulatory models, development of online gaming and an in-depth account of key case law.

Topics in this national reference include:
