Women in Criminal Justice: True Cases by and About Canadian Woman and the Law is the fourth book in Durvile’s True Cases series. The book is unique in that stories are authored by eminent Canadian women judges and lawyers and deal with terrorism, drugs, sexual assault, and mental disorders, as well as motherhood, child protection, LGBTQ+, immigration, Indigenous, and other urgent issues of our times. Writers and their stories represent Canada from coast to coast to coast.

“The reader emerges from reading Women in Criminal Justice with pictures in mind … women who work without respite to achieve just outcomes for the people they deal with, often in the face of difficulty and at considerable personal cost.” — The Rt. Hon Beverley McLachlin

Author royalties go to to establish Indigenous youth writers workshops in NWT.
