This collection of essays addresses some of the most important and challenging issues related to the legal status of children, and the volume makes an important contribution to the growing but still small Canadian literature on children’s rights. These essays are being published together to honour the scholarship of Nicholas Bala, professor of law at Queen’s University whose contribution to our understanding of the law as it relates to children and youth in Canada is unequalled.
