Promotional Information

Instead of focusing on idealized notions of Aboriginal justice, this book explores how Aboriginal justice can be practically implemented without conflicting with rights guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

About the Author

David Milward is an assistant professor of law at the University of Manitoba.


"David Milward ... has undertaken a remarkably difficult task in Aboriginal Justice and the Charter. In these pages, he considers the broad range of issues necessary to make a case for the creation of free-standing Aboriginal justice programs, conceived and administered by Aboriginal communities themselves ... Milward's work is timely and is a welcome change from the timidity regarding Aboriginal justice reform that has characterized Canada for far too long." -- from the Foreword by Bruce Granville Miller
