Posted on

By Melanie Hodges Neufeld

The Law Society Library is pleased to announce that we have renewed our members’ access to WestlawNext via the Members’ Section. Several WestlawNext Canada resources are included:

WestlawNext Canada LawSource

LawSource contains comprehensive coverage of Canadian case law, federal and provincial legislation, Canadian law reviews and journals, KeyCiteCanada case citatory, the Canadian Encyclopedic Digest (C.E.D.) and the Canadian Abridgment.

Canadian Encyclopedic Digest (C.E.D.)

The C.E.D. is a great place to begin your legal research. It provides you with a clear overview of any legal topic and gives you context to cases and legislation relevant to your issue. Over 225 subjects are listed alphabetically, with sub-topics to pinpoint the area of law you may be interested in.

The Canadian Abridgment

A comprehensive collection of over a million digests of Canadian case law organized by legal issue according to a single taxonomy (The Canadian Abridgment Key Classification System). This collection is exclusive to Carswell, and covers virtually every reported or unreported case received from the courts since 1986, with the exception of Quebec civil law cases

CriminalSource (formerly Criminal Spectrum)

WestlawNext Canada CriminalSource contains a large collection of criminal case law, annotations, commentary, and other tools.

FamilySource

WestlawNext Canada FamilySource contains a large collection of  family case law, legislation, and commentary.

LabourSource

Westlaw Canada LabourSource contains a large collection of court, arbitration and labour board decisions, commentary and collective bargaining material.
