The Law Society of Saskatchewan Library is pleased to announce that it has updated and revised the Subject Resource Guides featured in the Research Resources area of the Law Society website. Each guide provides the titles of key textbooks, ebooks, seminar papers, journals, forms and precedents, legal encyclopedias, provincial legislation, and federal legislation for a particular area of legal practice.
If you are beginning research in an area of the law you are unfamiliar with, we encourage you to consult the Subject Resource Guide for that topic. The guide will help familiarize you with the main resources for that practice area. Most importantly, the guide will help ensure you do not miss any of the key resources or leading textbooks.
You can find our updated Subject Resource Guides here:
- Civil Procedure (April 2009, update coming soon)
- Criminal Law (July 2015)
- Family Law (July 2015)
- Tort Law (July 2015)
- Trusts, Wills and Estates Law (July 2015)
The Law Society Library will continue to develop Subject Resource Guides in other areas of legal practice. If you have any particular requests for areas of practice not yet covered, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more Subject Resource Guides, you can consult chapter 8 of Ted Tjadens excellent textbook, Legal Research and Writing.
