Information for 2020-2021 Summer and Articling Students

Even though we may be living in extraordinary times, particularly for the justice sector, the staff of the CCLA Library are still here for you. This is especially true for this year’s summer and articling students. Normally, we invite students to come to the CCLA to meet us, have a tour of our space, and learn about our library services. As we don’t have a projected re-opening date, we aren’t able to invite students over, but we still very much want to meet them. Working with students is one of our favourite and most important jobs, so if you don’t read any further in this blog post, please pass along our email (library@ccla-abcc.ca) to your students!

If you will be taking on students (or already have), for either a summer term or for an articling year, please let us know! Student memberships in the CCLA are available – find out more and register here. However, if you aren’t sure that you’ll be signing your students up for membership, we’d still be grateful if you could send us a quick note with the names and emails of your students so that we can reach out to them and let them know about the CCLA Library.

As always, please encourage your students to sign up for our free email newsletter at this link. The CCLA News weekly newsletter and special announcements are a vital form of connection for the Ottawa legal community, and we’d love to have them on our list.

HeadStart Ottawa: Legal Research for Articling and LPP Students

In previous years, we’ve held a session exclusively for articling and LPP students called “HeadStart Ottawa.” While we may not have access to our physical space this year, we are delighted to announce that we will be planning a virtual HeadStart program for later this summer. Details on this free session will be available soon, so keep an eye out for that!

Linking to Conference Materials on CanLII

With our announcement that the CCLA Conference Papers Database has moved to CanLII, we are sure some of you are wondering how you can link to your work (for example, if you wanted to link from your firm website to a paper you gave). This is very easy to do on CanLII, so here are the step by step instructions! 

1. Find Your Paper

You can find your paper by browsing through the contents for each conference, or you can use the search box on the Conference Proceedings page to look for your paper title or your name.

2. When you’ve found your paper, look at the boxed heading at the top of the page


3. Copy the permanent link, and use that link for your website (or wherever!)

 

If you’re curious, that same tidy permanent link is available on all documents on CanLII. If you’re using CanLII at all – and you probably are or should be! – check that out for a nice, stable link in your documents.
