This is the second edition of Private Law, Social Life: An Introduction. This edition introduces an alternative to the core set of philosophical assumptions underlying private law doctrine. That alternative is a more community based, or “relationships based” focus, rather than the conventional individualistic set of assumptions. In each chapter, additional examples and other text is introduced to raise in the reader skepticism about dominant interpretations of private law doctrine, and critical positions in response. Professors Logan Atkinson and Neil Sargent investigate the role that private law plays in the organization of social life.

It has been 10 years since Bill C-45 was passed into law, a Criminal Code amendment that created the indictable offence of occupational health and safety (OHS) negligence. Norm Keith, a partner in a leading Canadian national law firm and a renowned, international expert on OHS issues, wrote the first in-depth analysis of Bill C-45, and its implications for workplace health and safety practices, in the book’s 2004 second edition. In this third edition, the author reviews 10 years of all the cases that have been prosecuted under this legislation, including the seminal case of R. v. Metron Construction Corporation, involving the prosecution and conviction of an employer for the deaths of four workers in the 2009 Christmas Eve scaffold collapse in Toronto.
