About the Author

Jim Reynolds is an associate counsel with Mandell Pinder LLP, Vancouver, and former general counsel for the Musqueam Indian Band in Vancouver. He is listed as a leading practitioner in Aboriginal law in Lexpert and Best Lawyers in Canada. He has practised, taught, and written about Aboriginal law for almost forty years.


As an introduction, [Aboriginal Peoples and the Law] offers ample contextualization of contemporary developments within the law-including overviews of historical background, treaties, Crown sovereignty, and Aboriginal rights and title-while keeping legal jargon and technical analysis to a minimum. In its efforts to remain accessible to all readers, Aboriginal Peoples and the Law invites all Canadians to participate in this crucial national discourse. -- Olivia Burgess * Canadian Literature *

As a lawyer with several decades behind me, I learned something on nearly every page. Most importantly, I appreciated Reynolds's explanation of the context in which the law has been made through judges' decisions and also of the relationships between the history and the present and between various sub-fields of Aboriginal law... My students, I believe, found Aboriginal Peoples a straightforward and easily-comprehensible explanation of the law that enabled them to get up to speed quickly and to begin to analyse current legal issues.

-- Sarah Pike * USAPP American Politics and Policy Blog *
Reynolds provides a clear and highly readable summary, and critical analysis, of Canadian law as it pertains to Aboriginal and treaty rights, self-government, Aboriginal title, the duty to consult, and to both Indigenous and international sources of law...this is an excellent book for introductory or intermediate-level undergraduate students, and both the layout and useful end-of-chapter summaries make it an ideal choice as a course text. -- Michael Murphy, University of Northern British Columbia * The Journal of the Institute of Public Administration of Canada *
