Sharp practice is a pejorative phrase used by judges in Canada to describe sneaky or cunning behavior that is technically within the rules of the law but borders on being unethical. The term "sharp practice" is used by two sources; in one a Canadian Construction Board gave an example of "sharp practice" for one party to "take advantage of a clear oversight by the opposite party in a proceeding." According to another source, a Canadian court of appeal judgement, judges should not accuse counsel of sharp practice lightly and should generally not make such an accusation based solely on written submissions.
