Perspectives on Evidentiary Privileges is the first Canadian resource that examines emerging doctrinal and policy issues concerning evidential privileges

Perspectives on Evidentiary Privileges features 12 scholarly papers that examine emerging doctrinal and policy issues concerning evidential privileges in the following areas: ‘Mr. Big’ undercover police operations; protection of journalistic source privilege; marital privilege; privilege for tax professionals; privilege issues surrounding police investigative techniques; case by case privilege; privilege for religious communications; Parliamentary records privilege; confidential informant privilege; privilege against self-incrimination; and researcher-participant privilege. As the first collection of its kind published in Canada, Perspectives on Evidential Privileges aims to advance debate on critical yet understudied issues relating to these evidential privileges.
