- Publisher's Summary
- The essays in this book explore litigation strategies and arguments in the defense of human rights in familiar North American and European cases. Among the book's contributors are several experienced litigators from the US and Canada - as well as from newer democracies, such as Poland or Russia - who share their insights on the unfolding of constitutional arguments in seminal cases. They reveal little-known details about famous developments in jurisprudence and advocacy strategies, which often prove instrumental for a more informed understanding of subsequent developments.
