Over the last number of years, a significant number of Canadian judges have joined the American Judges Association (Judge Russell Otter of the Ontario Court of Justice is the current AJA vice president). This has resulted in these Canadian judges receiving copies of Court Review. This has provided Canadian judges with an excellent source of information concerning the law as it exists and unfolds in the United States of America. Though there are substantial differences between the constitutions and legal systems of our two countries, there are also great similarities. Thus, Court Review provides Canadian judges with information that is useful and relevant to their consideration and application of Canadian law in the daily fulfillment of their judicial duties.

But no similar Canadian publication provides information on Canadian law to American judges, though such information might be of interest or use to American judges.
