Posted on Updated on

By Alan Kilpatrick

cedDid you know that the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library carries the complete fourth edition of the Canadian Encyclopedia Digest (CED) 4th ed. in Regina?  The CED is a comprehensive legal encyclopedia.  It summarizes all areas of Canadian law across 223 titles.  Topics are arranged alphabetically and include frequent references to case law and statutes.

Some topics summarized in the CED include aboriginal law, conflict of laws, liens, military law, public inquiries, railways, and religious institutions.

Given its broad scope, the CED is a key research resource and an excellent place to begin your legal research.  When working in an unfamiliar area of the law, consider consulting the CED.

If you have any questions about using the CED, ask a Law Society Librarian. We are pleased to provide legal research assistance to Saskatchewan members in person, on the telephone, or by email.
