Abstract:     
Book review: Canadian Maverick: The Life and Times of Ivan C. Rand, by William Kaplan.

TO LAWYERS, SCHOLARS, AND STUDENTS of a certain generation, Ivan C. Rand was an iconic figure. He is remembered as the judge who forged a singular path for the Supreme Court of Canada in that first, magical decade of final-court supremacy after Privy Council appeals ended. Rand immortalized the Court’s coming of age with glittering decisions showcasing “found” rights that were protected by the Constitution from violations by the state. Extra-judicially, he masterminded a solution to the Ford strike and invented the “Rand formula” - a brilliant device of union security that made union dues mandatory without creating a closed shop. Accomplishments that continue to stand out in Canadian legal historymarked Rand as a man who was ahead of his time.
