Indigenous people are the most over-represented population in Canada’s criminal justice system. Their experiences within the system are interwoven with issues of colonialism and discrimination. Indigenous People and the Criminal Justice System: A Practitioner’s Handbook takes an expansive view of these issues and their impact. Author Jonathan Rudin also provides a practical review of leading case law, as well as day-to-day considerations for practitioners who are working with Indigenous clients.
