FOREWORD Seventy-five years of public service to the criminal justice fraternity of Canada is an accomplishment worthy of recognition. For those who strive in the trenches, the Canadian Criminal Justice Association has provided a source of inspirational leadership in an area normally shunned by the public. Many, indeed, have benefitted directly and indirectly from the work of all those who laboured in the Association. The Canadian Criminal Justice Association is to be commended for providing "The First 75 Years" as a record of accomplishment and commitment. All those associated with the effort are to be congratulated! Ottawa, May 24, 1995 Earl A. Hastings, Senator.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
