  • Peter J. McCormick

Abstract

The author undertakes an examination of the citation practices of the Supreme Court of Canada from 1984 to 1994, with a look at which courts and which judges the Supreme Court tends to favour. Particular attention is given to the frequency of references to the decisions of Alberta courts. Additionally, the article canvasses the basic functions served by the practice of judicial citation.
