Quebec Legal Info Service CAIJ Now Has Commentary From 29 Law Firms

10 Mar 2017 12:15 PM | Michel-Adrien Sheppard (Administrator)

CAIJ, the Centre d'accès à l'information juridique (the network of courthouse law libraries associated with the Québec Bar Association), has signed resource sharing agreements with many major law firms in Québec that make their legal commentary freely available on the organization's website.

This week, CAIJ announced that it will now feature texts written by lawyers from the firm of  McCarthy Tétrault. This means there are 29 law firms that share material with CAIJ in English and French.

Their material will be added to a collection that already includes full-text commentary and textbooks including the Développements récents  (annual reviews of areas of law), the Collection de droit (Bar School  materials), proceedings of the annual Quebec Bar Association congresses, a growing number of treatises from publisher Wilson  & Lafleur, numerous annotated acts, case law, and a list of thousands of legal questions with their corresponding answers.

Readers may also be familiar with similar initiatives such as CanLII Connects that allows publishers, law firms and academics to share commentary on cases and legislation on the CanLII website funded by Canada’s provincial and territorial law societies.

As well, sites such as Fee Fie Foe Firm and Lexology allow searchers to find material published by law firms.
