The Legal Sourcery team would like to take a moment to give a shout out to a new legal resources blog, Robeside Assistance.  Robeside Assistance is the relaunch and rebranding of the County of Carleton Law Association (CCLA) Library’s existing blog.  It is written and maintained by the CCLA’s phenomenal library staff: Jennifer Walker, Brenda Lauritzen, and Amanda Elliott.

Robeside Assistance features practical legal research tips and tricks, the lowdown on the latest legal resources, and reliable compilations of recently published Ottawa decisions.  Here are a few of the great research tips you will find featured on Robeside Assistance:

We have to hand it to them, coming up with a great blog name can be difficult.  Robeside Assistance takes the cake when it comes to blog names.

We look forward to following Robeside Assistance.  It can be found online at
