ISBN:: 9780433467694


The body of law surrounding investigative detention continues to grow, and this practical textbook, now in its second edition, contains the latest developments in the law, as seen from three recent Supreme Court of Canada cases. Written by a thirty-year veteran lawyer who has argued cases for both the Crown and defence, this book, unlike any other criminal law textbook, provides a comprehensive legal analysis of the doctrine, covering every significant aspect, from the types of investigative detention, to the ways in which it can be challenged (or upheld). This useful guide provides a "roadmap" for any criminal law practitioner whose clients have been in - or are about to face - investigative detention.
