The Federal Courts and National Security and Intelligence Law


From: The Federal Court of Appeal and the Federal Court


This chapter examines the Federal Courts’ chief responsibilities in Canadian national security and intelligence law and discusses the unique procedural context in which the Federal Courts have adjudicated national security and intelligence cases, pointing to procedural innovations the courts have adopted to deal, especially, with what the author calls “closed proceedings.”
