A comprehensive treatise
The main author of The Law of Limitations, 3rd Edition is The Honourable Mr. Justice Graeme Mew, an experienced former litigator and now a judge of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. This edition includes significant contributions from Debra Rolph, Director of Research, Claims at Lawyers' Professional Indemnity Company (LAWPRO) and Daniel Zacks of Clyde & Co LLP in Toronto.
In this comprehensive treatise, they offer expert commentary that begins with the general legal principles and history underlying time limitations in all jurisdictions across Canada, as well as an outline of the historical pressures that shaped this important legal area. They then shift the focus to an analysis of limitation periods specific to personal actions, actions involving real property and the limitations associated with specific parties such as proceedings by and against the government. Finally, they explore the impact of The Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and in particular, how the section 15 equality guarantee has affected the application of limitation periods for different classes of litigants.
