Introducing Delve Books!

Irwin Law is proud to announce the launch of Delve Books, a new trade imprint that will focus on providing insightful analysis into influential law cases that have shaped Canadian culture and society. Our books will be aimed at the general trade audience — readers who are interested in the impact of the law on their lives, but who may not necessarily have a legal background.

Delve will focus on filling the gap in the literary marketplace for intelligent and entertaining books that analyze the ramifications of a case’s judgment or how the case has shaped society. We see an opportunity to provide original, meaningful, and compelling analysis into major Canadian criminal cases.

Our first title is The Death of a Butterfly: Mental Health Court Diaries, which explores the mental health court and its relationship with the mentally disordered accused from the perspective of Ontario Court Justice Richard D. Schneider.

And we’re just getting started! Be sure to check back often and follow Delve Books on social media for updates:
