What they say

“Stories that stand out – personal, sometimes heart-rending stories told by defence lawyers, Crown attorneys and judges involved in Canada’s legal system.” — Jack Batten, The Toronto Star

“The reader emerges from reading Women in Criminal Justice with pictures in mind ... women who work without respite to achieve just outcomes for the people they deal with, often in the face of difficulty and at considerable personal cost.”
— The Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin
