Estoppel is understood at a basic level by many lawyers, but this set of legal doctrines is highly complex and filled with such confusing terminology, such that it poses a challenge for both practitioners and scholars alike. This is the first Canadian text book that clarifies the subject matter from a Canadian legal standpoint, and deals with its complexity and subtleties in a manner that's easily understood. Written by a veteran University of British Columbia law professor, this civil litigation book pulls together various aspects of estoppel into one place, saving readers valuable research time, while educating them on the rules and principles of estoppel in a clear and organized manner.
