Professor Han-Ru Zhou has received a $5,000 grant from the Foundation for Legal Research of the Canadian Bar Association for his project of a casebook in Canadian constitutional law.
The book is based on the first part of the classic casebook entitled Droits constitutionnel: notes et jurisprudence (1982, P.U.M., 1728 pages) by François Chevrette and Herbert Marx, two former constitutional law professors at the Université de Montréal Faculty of Law. This book has served both as a popular university textbook and as an authoritative source (still) regularly cited by Canadian judges and lawyers. Once published, the book will be the first and only Canadian constitutional law casebook available in French and English.
The Foundation for Legal Research was created in 1957. The goal of the Foundation is to encourage legal writing that would be valuable to Canadian lawyers, notaries and judges in their day-to-day practice of law and into the administration of justice.
