This collection of Canadian legal history essays honours Professor Peter Oliver, who led the Osgoode Society as editor-in-chief from its establishment until his death in 2006. The essays are written by Osgoode Society authors, and/or by students and colleagues of Peter’s at York University, and include almost all the major figures working in the field of Canadian legal history today. The introduction provides a history of the Osgoode Society and of Peter’s role in it. The volume is a fitting tribute to an extraordinary life and career.
