Upcoming Webinar on Saskatchewan Legislation Research

Posted on Updated on

By Alan Kilpatrick

Researching Saskatchewan Legislation Online” is a one (1) hour webinar being held on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 PM (Saskatchewan time).

How do you see what a current statute looked like in 2005? When did a statutory amendment come into force? When was a particular section first passed?

In this practical skills-based webinar, Ken Fox and Alan Kilpatrick, Reference Librarians with the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library, will demonstrate how to navigate the world of legislation online, based on questions that come up in the daily practice of law, with particular emphasis on Saskatchewan legislation. Topics will include:

  • Researching statutory histories
  • Navigating the Queen’s Printer website
  • Using CanLII to find statutes
  • Finding equivalent legislation in other jurisdictions
  • Finding proclamations, coming-in-force dates
  • Searching Orders In Council

Ken Fox has worked as Reference Librarian with the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library for five years, and served as librarian at a private law firm in Winnipeg prior to that. Alan Kilpatrick is new to legal librarianship, and brings a wealth of fresh ideas and energy to the practice. Both Ken and Alan have their Master’s degree in Library and Information Science.
