Resource Spotlight: Bullen & Leake & Jacob’s Canadian Precedents of Pleadings, 3rd Edition

I was tempted to title this post “Omg, we love this book!” Don’t mistake my staid title for a lack of enthusiasm, though: we still really love this book, and were very excited to grab the newest edition when it came out at the end of last year. You may have noticed it in our most recent round-up of new titles in the library, but this is such a favourite of ours that it deserves its own post. You may recall we highlighted the second edition, so if you’ve become a fan of this book too, here’s your notice that a new edition is out!

The third edition of Canadian Precedents of Pleadings has grown to a rather thick three volumes. A comparison of the (excellently detailed) table of contents reveals new sections on the following:

  • Aboriginal Law
  • Arbitration
  • Aviation
  • Debtor-Creditor
  • Environmental Law
  • Family Law
  • Immigration
  • Information Technology
  • Insurance Coverage
  • Plain Language
  • Restitution
  • Wills and Estates

As with previous editions, this title comes with a CD-ROM of precedents, which is quite useful if you decide you’d like to use any of these in your practice. You can find this book in our temporary library at KF 8868.1 B85 2017, or ask any of the library staff for help.
