The Best Guide to Canadian Legal Research – Tip of the Week

Posted on

By Alan Kilpatrick

I am excited to let you know about a major development with the Best Guide to Canadian Legal Research.  As you may know, the guide is a popular free online legal research guide that has been a fixture of the internet for the last fifteen years.     

The online guide was created and maintained for the past decade and a half by Catherine Best, an experienced research lawyer, author, and CanLII board member.  Catherine retired from law in 2015.

CanLII recently announced that it will be assuming editorship of the guide now that Catherine has retired.  It will also be adopted as CanLII’s official legal research guide.

Consequently, the guide has been rebranded as The Canadian Legal Research and Writing Guide and will now be available at

You can learn more from CanLII’s official news announcement.

If you have any questions, ask a Law Society Librarian! We are pleased to provide high-quality legal research services to Saskatchewan members in person, on the telephone, or by email.
