The Impact of International Law on the Practice of Law in Canada : Proceedings of the 27th Annual Conference of the Canadian Council on International Law, Ottawa, October 15-17, 1998 : Travaux Du 27e Congrès Annuel Du Conseil Canadien De Droit International, Ottawa, 15-17 Octobre, 1998. 107-110.


The Canadian Council on International Law was founded in 1972 to represent Canadian international law practitioners and academics and to facilitate and promote the study of international legal problems by scholars and professionals. These conference proceedings comprise a collection of essays written by leading academics and practitioners on the subject of how international law affects Canadian domestic law. A wide range of domestic law areas are covered, including environmental law, international trade law, constitutional law, international treaties, and the treatment of women in relation to immigration and refugee law. This work will be of value to Canadian scholars and practitioners, professionals who have international dealings with Canada on a public or private basis, and those with an interest in comparative law.
