Law faculty explore Canadian charter in new book

November 21, 2023

TRU Law professors Chris Hunt and Robert Diab examine section 8 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in their newly published book: Search and Seizure.

The book is presented in a narrative format accessible to general readers, with close to exhaustive coverage for lawyers and judges.

It deals with all aspects of section 8, including a reasonable expectation of privacy, the many sources in law authorizing a search or seizure, when such laws are reasonable under the charter, and when a search or seizure is conducted in a reasonable manner.

Diab and Hunt also include a detailed account of how warrants are obtained and the law on executing them, how to challenge the validity of a search or seizure, and remedies for a breach of section 8. Its conciseness, accessibility and scope make this an ideal book for students and jurists alike.
