Canadian Courts aims to specifically address the relationship between the law and politics in a very broad sense, that is, by not just focusing on one institution, such as the Supreme Court, or one relationship, such as that between judges, politicians, and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The book's principle aims are to foster an understanding of the actors and institutions in Canada's judicial process; to demonstrate that the judicial process is a key part of Canada's governing process; to reveal the interrelationship between law, politics, and the judicial process; and to help readers engage in the theories, concepts, and debates that surround the judicial process and its interaction with law and politics.
Exploring Criminal Justice in Canada is an engaging, accessible introduction to the field. Critical, up-to-date coverage of cutting-edge case studies, media issues, and controversies throughout the book encourage student interest and teach the down-to-earth, real-world realities of the Canadian criminal justice system. By using a solutions-based approach, students are encouraged to see where and how evidence-based practice is improving recidivism and crime rates (and where they are not).
Improving Speed and Accuracy in Keyboarding (ISAK) is your complete individualized skillbuilding system designed to improve students’ speed and accuracy in keyboarding. Most competitive keyboarding texts do not differentiate between speed and accuracy drills. Research has proven that students cannot simultaneously build speed and accuracy as each requires different actions and mindsets. In ISAK, each unit is made up three lessons focusing separately on speed, accuracy and technique, allowing students to practice and develop all aspects of their keyboarding skills.
