Rate this:

A commemoration of two significant dates, The Supreme Court of Canada and its Justices is also a colourful portrait and an indispensable reference book.

A bilingual co-publication of Dundurn Press and the Supreme Court of Canada, the book contains biographies, with portraits or photographs, of every Justice appointed to the Court since its inception. The Supreme Court of Canada and its Justices also features a preface by Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin and a history of the Court by former Chief Justice Antonio Lamer. A succession list and a selected bibliography are included for researchers.

A key section of the book deals with the Court's distinguished building, which was designed by renowned architect Ernest Cormier. Written by Professor Isabelle Gournay of the University of Maryland and France Vanlaethem of the Universite du Quebec a Montreal, this section is illustrated with Cormier's own watercolours and drawings, as well as current photographs. The Supreme Court of Canada and its Justices is a fitting commemoration of the Supreme Court's 125 years and its fiftieth year as the court of last resort in Canada.
