CanLII Spring 2019 Updates

Keen observers and users of CanLII may have noticed that things look a little different lately. Last month, the CanLII team wrote about new design changes that were made on the website to help with clarity and consistency. Check out their blog post (linked above) for all the details.

For my money, I think the biggest change that you may want to familiarize yourself with is where to find additional information on decision and legislation pages. You can see on the example below, for a judicial decision, that links (or tabs) to the case history, decisions cited, subsequent case citations, and links to material on CanLII Connects are now available just below the name of the case (or legislation). Previously, these links were tucked in a bit further below.

#ThrowbackThursday: CCLA / GCTC Lawyer Play 2009

The 20th anniversary CCLA / GCTC Lawyer Play – War of Two Worlds – is currently running, so this week we’re throwing back to the 2009 Lawyer Play. That year, the play was written by Ottawa’s own (and CCLA Past President!) Ian Stauffer and was called Lost in Paradise.

 

You can find a listing of all of the past Lawyer Plays on the CCLA website. We have a few more recent posters to add, and now that renovations are complete, we’ll be re-instituting the wall of Lawyer Play posters in the Library!

Library Tours for Summer Students

With summer students starting in the firms, we’d like to remind everyone that we offer library tours! This year we’re very excited to be able to offer them tours in the newly renovated library! Library tours are a great opportunity to meet library staff and learn about library resources, training opportunities, and legal services to support and assist a legal practice. We also encourage any and all students to sign up for the CCLA Newsletter to begin learning about news, events, and opportunities in the East Region. The newsletter is always free, and not tied to CCLA membership.

Tours will be held beginning May 14 on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 AM, and usually take between 15 to 20 minutes. Please email library@ccla-abcc.ca or call 613-233-7386 x221 to schedule a tour.


#ThrowbackThursday: East Region Solicitors Conference 1999

I’m impressed to say that for a conference held in November 1999, there doesn’t appear to be have been even one session on Y2K Preparedness at the 1999 Solicitors Conference! That year, the theme was advising the family-owned business, though the agenda held quite a bit more than that! I’m not sure which Trumps Justice Kershman was referring to in his talk (sadly, the paper does not make reference to any Trumps), but I can only imagine it’s our neighbours to the South! The 2019 conference kicks off tomorrow – you can see that agenda here.
