Miscarriages of Justice in Canada: Causes, Responses, Remedies (Kathryn M. Campbell)

  • Jonathan Freedman University of Toronto


This book covers a great deal of material related to wrongful conviction or as the book terms it miscarriages of justice.  As the subtitle says, the book deals with the causes, responses, and remedies.  There is a wealth of information in the book that could serve as an introduction to this very important topic. It would be appropriate as a textbook for a course for undergraduates or even graduates or law students who want to learn about what causes wrongful convictions and how to prevent them from happening in the future. In that sense the book is a successful venture written by a very knowledgeable person and presented in a logical, thorough way.
