Law Reporting in Nineteenth Century Quebec

Authors: Normand, SylvioCrête, RaymondeCopeland, Thomas
Abstract: This text deals with the emergence of written case reports within the legal system of Lower Canada during the nineteenth century. By highlighting the context that fostered the regular publication of judicial decisions, the authors hope to attain a better understanding of the significance of this phenomenon. To accomplish this goal, the chaotic state of law is surveyed at the beginning and in the middle of the nineteenth century. A second chapter analyses the rise of a more rational, indigenous legal structure. The last section deals exclusively with the emergence of published judicial decisions.
