A history of Saskatchewan’s highest court as it reaches its centennial in 2018, The Court of Appeal for Saskatchewan places the court within the advancement of law in Canada, as well as within the specific context of Saskatchewan’s legal, political, and social development. Tying together legal analysis with a strong narrative of a crucial Saskatchewan institution, Mittelstadt includes a biography of every judge of the court, including the context of their appointments, discusses the court's internal workings and organization, and relates some of the touchstone legal decisions that influenced both the province and the nation.
