Professor Ronald CC Cuming teaches at the College of Law, Univer-
sity of Saskatchewan. The focus of his academic work over a career
of forty-six years (to date) has been on research that provides the

development of which he played a central role, has resulted in the cre-

Professor Cuming has acted as a con sultant to international de-
